Electrical Permitting and Inspections starting February 1st


This department handles all aspects of your building project from concept to completion. We coordinate all the inspections required to make your project safe and successful. Please stay tuned to our site for upcoming information.

Our primary mission in the Building Department is to assure that all projects that are completed within the City of Gallatin are built correctly through enforcement of the International Building Code in order to protect the life, health and safety of its citizens in the build environment.

  • We recognize that proper construction and safety is best promoted by voluntary compliance with building codes and the good faith efforts of responsible contractors.
  • We are committed to supplying quality services to all citizens through innovation, continuous improvement, and excellence in customer service.
  • We believe in equitable treatment for all individuals, regardless of circumstances, and work to enforce all building codes in a fair and considerate manner.
