  • Let’s talk about Hayward City. I went into their Building Department yesterday and was back out in less than an hour permit in hand. I admit, I helped by having my documents prepared before I walked into the room, but the staff there did everything necessary to approve the permit and send me on my way. Very Impressive Hayward!

  • I love the City of Hayward Building Department, until today. I have just spent the past 2-3 hours trying to resolve setting an Inspection through their new Self-Service system with negative result. And, I have called every phone number the City has and cannot get anyone on the phone. I cannot get a single person by telephone, and that includes secretary and supervisor lines also.
