Schedule an Appointment


Due to community spread of COVID-19 in our city, City Hall is closed until at least January 15th. Community members can continue to schedule virtual appointments for applications, permits and plan reviews or call (208) 608-7100 for Planning questions and (208) 608-7070 for Building questions. Public Record Requests can be filed online.

Additionally, from November 21, 2020 to January 15, 2021, inspections will only be conducted when and where safety protocols aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19 are followed. Inspectors have the right to reschedule an inspection if they feel a site is not following proper preventative procedures. Similarly, we ask that you reschedule your inspection if you or anyone on your project is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.
