The City of Elgin utilizes the services of ATS Engineers, Inspectors and Surveyors to perform all plan reviews and inspections within city limits. 

It is the responsibility of the permit holder to schedule inspection requests for each phase of construction prior to proceeding with construction and/or covering work. Passed inspections allow construction to proceed to the next phase. Failed inspections (where a non-compliance exists with the applicable adopted codes and/or ordinances) shall be remedied and re‐inspected for compliance prior to proceeding with construction. All re-inspection fees must be paid to the City before re-inspections are to be scheduled.
