The City of Folsom implemented a new inspection scheduling system March 14. Inspections can now be scheduled by an automated phone system or online via eTRAKiT and can be scheduled up to four days in advance.
To schedule an inspection, call 916-573-6734 or use eTRAKiT.
Next day inspections can be requested until 3pm. Any inspections requested after 3pm will be scheduled a minimum two business days out.
Your permit will have a preloaded list of inspections to choose from that are required prior to the final inspection or you can select an inspection online by clicking on "schedule" under inspections.
NOTE: If your permit was submitted prior to March 14, 2022, a preloaded list of inspections will not be provided. Please call 916-573-6734 to schedule your inspections with the desired IVR Code.
Call 916-573-6734 to schedule an inspection by phone. You’ll need:
- 11-digit permit number (example: NRES22-03945).
- 3-digit inspection IVR Code.
