It shall be the policy of the City of Sarasota's Building Department that when choosing the option to use private providers for the plan review and inspections, the owner will be required to have the provider do both plan review and inspections. The Building Department will not be doing one and the private provider the other. Please read House Bill 1307 carefully as to what the Building Department will still be able to do even when private providers will be utilized.
