Electric Department

Building Permit Required Work



The City of Leesburg Electric Department  is often questioned on what type of work requires a permit. Since we work within 4 jurisdictions, the answers were not always the same.  We have contacted the individual permitting agencies and put together this information for our customers.



Here is what we were able to put together for our customers.


City of Leesburg


Permit and inspection required for all work.


Emergency situations (after hours)

A permit and inspection can be obtained after the work is completed.

Scada will email the building department in the case of emergency reconnects.

Permit and inspection is required:

If a service is “altered” in any form, a permit and inspection is required.

If a homeowner does any work a permit and inspection is required.


Repair work;


If a licensed electrician does any repair work, a permit or inspection is not needed.

If a homeowner does any work a permit and inspection is required.
