(Replaced by Ordinance No. 174880; amended by 178578, effective September 1,
2004.) If no inspection approval has taken place within six months after permit
issuance, the permit shall become void, and no further plumbing work shall be
done at the premises until a new permit has been secured and a new fee paid.
Each time an inspection approval is granted, the permit shall be deemed to be
automatically extended for six months, until final approval is granted. The
Director may extend a permit for one period of six months upon finding that the
permittee was unable to commence or continue work for reasons beyond his or her
control. Extension requests shall be in writing and shall be received by the
Director before the permit expiration date. If an inspection approval has not
been granted within this extended time period, the permit shall be void. A
permit that has been expired for six months or less may be renewed provided no
changes have been made in the original plans and specifications for such work.
No permit may be renewed if it has been expired for more than six months. A
permit may be renewed only once. If an inspection approval has not been granted
within the time period of permit renewal the permit shall be void. The renewal
fee shall be as specified in the Council adopted fee schedule.
