Inspections Generally

Whenever inspections of the premises used for or in connection with the operation of a licensed business or occupation are provided for or required by ordinance or are reasonably necessary to secure compliance with any ordinance provision or to detect violations thereof, it shall be the duty of the licensee or the person in charge of the premises to be inspected, to admit thereto for the purpose of making such inspection any officer or employee of the City who is authorized or directed to make such inspection at any reasonable time that admission is requested.

No license shall be issues for the conduct of any business, and no permit for any thing or act, if the premises and building to be used for the purpose do not fully comply with the requirements of the ordinances of the City.

No such license or permit shall be issued for the conduct of any business or performance of any act which would involve a violation of the Zoning Ordinance.

Commodities or Materials...

Whenever any analysis or any commodity or material is reasonably necessary to secure conformance with any ordinance provision or to detect violations thereof, it shall be the duty of any licensee of the Municipality whose business is governed by such provision to give to any authorized officer or employee of the Municipality requesting the same, sufficient samples or such material or commodity for such analysis upon request.

Certification of Compliance...

No building or structure erected or structurally altered shall be occupied and used until a certificate of compliance (commonly referred to as a certificate of occupancy) has been issued by the Building Commissioner (commonly referred to as the Building Inspector).

The Certificate shall be issued only after the Inspector makes a finding that the building or structure has been erected or structurally altered in conformance with the ordinances of the municipality and other health and building laws and in accordance with a building permit.

Form of Certification...

A certificate of compliance (or certificate of occupancy) is deemed issued when the conditions of all outstanding permits have been satisfied and reported by the City's inspectors as such to the Building Inspector, so long as the subject property is not found in violation of a city ordinance or code.
