Wasco County Building Codes Services Opens Monday
The new Wasco County Building Codes Services will open its doors on Monday. The County is taking over building codes operations from the state, which has been handing the duty since February 2018, when Mid-Columbia Council of Governments was being dissolved. Permit services will begin on Monday with inspections still being handled by the state thorough the end of the month, with Wasco County taking over the inspections on July 1. Wasco County Building Codes Services will continue to be located at 2705 East Second Street in The Dalles and can be reached by calling (541) 506-2650. The office will be open to the public from 8:00 am – Noon and 1:00 – 4:00 pm Monday through Thursday, and 7:30 – 11:30 am on Fridays. All building codes services for Sherman, Gilliam, and Wheeler counties will be moved to the state’s Pendleton office at 800 SE Emigrant Avenue, Suite 360. That phone number is 541-276-7814.
