9/17/19: Phone Problems Update

We are currently having a problem with our phone system. It is operating normally during the day. On our closure day, it should give a message saying we are closed to the public. It is possible if you call on the 25th, it will instead just keep ringing, or tell you to call again in a few minutes.

You may contact us through e-mail instead, and request inspections through the web site.
