I'm having my kitchen renovated and it seems the city inspection department requires contractors to come in and personally request an inspection for that day. They are not allowed to call or ask online. As you can imagine, this wastes quite a bit of their time. In the case of today, my contractor drove in, parked his car somewhere (and paid for parking) and went in, just to be told his inspector was at a seminar and he would have to return tomorrow. There has to be a better way for the city to handle this. It's embarrassing to me as the Boston homeowner that my city's procedures are so insensitive to the value of other people's time and the delays caused while waiting for inspections, let alone the costs that get passed on to the homeowner (or swallowed by the contractor as down time).
