Is my final grading approved?

Before calling the city, check with your builder to verify that the final survey has been submitted. If the survey has been submitted, your next step would be to contact the Building Department to check the status of the survey. When the Building Department receives the survey from the builder, it is sent to the Engineering Department. The survey is then marked "Rejected" or "Approved." If the survey is rejected, it is up to the builder to correct the problems and then submit a new survey. The Engineering Department will not make another inspection until a new survey is received. For questions, please contact the Engineering Department at (815) 838-0549, ext. 2313.
