26.04.060 Partial Permits.

The permit for an electrical installation requiring plan review will not be issued, nor may work proceed, until the plans are approved by an electrical plan examiner.  However, the Director may authorize the issuance of a partial permit before the entire plans and specifications are submitted or approved.  Adequate information shall be submitted showing the areas of work to be covered by the partial permit and compliance with pertinent portions of the Electrical Code.  Applicants will be notified in writing of which portions of the work may proceed and of the conditions under which work may proceed.  Issuance of a partial permit, or authorization to commence an installation, shall not constitute assurance to the applicant that a permit on the entire installation will be issued, or that corrections will not be required on the portions of the installation granted preliminary authorization.
