I went to the mayor on this, he got back to me the next day with apologies and tried to stick up for the guy a little. Once I went through the whole thing with him he said he would see what he could do.
The city has 2 inspectors, the backup guy called me within 2 minutes of talking to the mayor nice as can be and I have an inspection for Tuesday 11-12. I hope this closes it out and doesn't bust my balls over this.
John nobody is perfect and not everything goes to plan but a simple phone call would have prevented any of this.

Communications solve issues before they become disasters.

I agree with HotLine. We all know "things" happen, just let me know you're held up for one reason or another and we'll meet another time. Leaving people standing around for hours just to no-show is just bs.

FWIW, if you were in my twp., and went to Administration (Mayor, BA, etc) they would ask you for a contact phone number.

The steps they would take:
Call to the Construction Official (or me if he is unavailable)

CO would call me, or my inspector.

Me, or my inspector would call you, and IF you were available, you would get an inspection. If you were not available that day, you would get inspected next day. This applies to all disciplines (B/E/P/F)

Like I said, we are not perfect, but we try to please.

Just to update, got my inspection. He had me pull the panel cover, got a good compliment on my work and out the door he went. This is how all inspections should go.
