City of Bishop: Inyo and Bishop Consolidate Building Permitting

Inyo and Bishop Consolidate Building Permitting Earlier this year Inyo County and the City of Bishop consolidated the building permit staff for each agency at one location at Bishop City Hall. The consolidation was done to improve service and reduce cost.

Inyo County’s Building and Safety staff are now based in the Public Works Office at Bishop City Hall, 377 West Line Street. The county staff now perform building permitting and inspection for the city as well as the county.

Inyo County Building and Safety staff are available during regular City Hall hours, 8 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday, excluding city holidays. They can assist with building permitting throughout Inyo County including the City of Bishop.

Although the county staff has moved to city offices, they can still be reached at the usual county phone number 760-873-7857. For projects in the city they can be reached at the city phone number, 760-873-8458. Their mailing address is the same as City Hall, 377 West Line Street, Bishop, California 93514.

Inyo County and City of Bishop have appreciated the public’s patience during the move to City Hall and appreciate patience as details of the consolidation are worked through in coming months. Comments and suggestions on building permitting and the consolidation are always welcome by both agencies.
