A new e-government initiative makes the process of requesting and knowing the status of inspections easy. The Advanced Permitting and Inspections Portal or APIX allows registered users to request building and trades inspections, view scheduled and pending inspections, and get inspection results via a gateway featured on the county’s website (www.montgomerycountyva.gov).
Contractors and homeowners no longer need to call to schedule an inspection or visit multiple job sites to know the results of inspections. Instead, they can simply use a smart phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer to make requests or find information.
“We’re excited about APIX. It will make things easier for us as code officials and more convenient for contractors and builders. This type of technology allows them to be anywhere in the world to get this aspect of their jobs done,” said County Building Official Bill Yeager.
