City of Tallahassee and Leon County Electrical Reconnect Procedures for Storm Damage

In preparation for any storm damage related to the reconnection of electric power services within the City of Tallahassee and Leon County caused by Hurricane Michael, we have adopted the following procedures:

If the service conductors are disconnected from the structure with damage only to the mast, the reconnection will not require a permit or inspection by Building Inspection.  The City's Electric Department or Talquin Electric will reconnect the service.

If there is damage to the meter base and it needs to be replaced, a permit and inspection are both required by the City or County Building Inspection Divisions. If the permitting system is unavailable to obtain a permit, please email and (City) or call the County at (850)606-1398 and provide the address and scope of work associated with the repair. When the permitting system is available, obtain the permit. Once the inspection has been completed, Building Inspection will send a release to the City's Electric Department or Talquin Electric to reconnect the service.
