The City of Post Falls has updated their current Permitting Program and online Permit Portal. The online Permit Portal is more streamlined and user friendly. This Portal allows our customers to apply for Building, Planning and Engineering applications. Customers are able to apply, upload plans and documents, pay fees online, track and schedule their own inspections on their customer dashboard page.
To utilize the Customer Permitting Portal you will need to apply for an account. We ask that you create one account per company. By creating only one account anyone within your Company will have the availability to submit and check the status of plan reviews and inspections. Therefore, you will need to create a generic group email, just as we have for our permit technicians, (firstname.lastname@example.org). If someone within your company has already submitted for an account any additional requests will be denied. Once you receive a confirmation email you may go back and login to your new account. If you have any questions/concerns please feel free to contact email@example.com.

Callers will be asked to leave their permit number, job address, inspection type and the date the inspection is desired. Please remember that if all information is not left, an inspection cannot be scheduled. Also note that the Building Division does not schedule am or pm inspections so your job will need to be ready the morning of the inspection. However, if you are pouring concrete, please leave your pour time as the inspectors will try to work with that time frame. Inspection requests left after 5 pm will not be able to be scheduled for the following day.
