With a commitment to keep our employees and customers healthy, due to the rapid increase of COVID-19, please allow us to assist you remotely through our website, phone or email. If remote options of service are not possible, we will gladly schedule an appointment. We hope to return to normal operations by the end of October.


With the rapid increase in positive Covid and Delta Variant cases, the city of Nampa’s first priority is the health and safety of the public and the city’s staff. As of September 20, 2021 the city of Nampa building department will be suspending all inspections that require the inspection staff to enter private residences. These inspections will include but not limited to Mechanical retro, water heater, circuit extensions, adding gas lines for dryers and stoves. The suspension of these inspections will be through October 4, 2021, at that time the city will evaluate the health risk and either extend or lift the suspension on these types of inspections.

Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for the inconvenience these suspensions may create.

For questions or clarifications, please call 208-468-5435.
