Thank you for visiting the City of Oshkosh Inspection Services Division Website. We are dedicated to protecting the health, safety and welfare of people in the City of Oshkosh. When you think of the Inspection Services Division you probably think of permits or inspections. Issuing permits and performing inspections is at the center of our department but it’s definitely not all that we do. Our department is also responsible for the enforcement of numerous City Ordinances relating to Property Maintenance, Minimum Housing, and public nuisances such as weeds, long grass, wood storage and junk and debris. We also administer the Rental Housing program and the Weights & Measures program for the City of Oshkosh.

As you browse through our site, we hope that you learn more about our department, the codes that we enforce and answer any questions you may have. If you have additional questions please contact any one of our helpful staff members to assist you.
