Electrical Permits

The Electrical Inspection Division of the Department of Building Inspection and Neighborhood Services issues electrical permits and performs inspections associated with those permits. With a few minor exemptions, all electrical work done in the City of West Allis must be performed under an issued electrical permit.

Installing communication and low voltage wiring and their devices or outlets in commercial occupancies also requires an electrical permit. An electrical contractor or communication equipment contractor may secure this permit.
