Thanks for everyone's input. Here's the response I got back from the development services department. I know I will need the electrician to get a permit for the electrical. And since we won't require an inspection (no tampering of structural components), as ShaneSA said above---this seems to me just a free head's up to the appraisal office.

A General Repairs permit is required for an interior repairs plus an Electrical Permit is also required. A licensed & bonded Master Electrician & registered by the City can purchase an electrical permit for the outlets & lightning. You can find an Electrician in our website. In the center of the page, on top, click on "Online Services" and scroll down to "License Contractor Search" and there is a list of Electricians that are licensed & bonded. If you should require further assistance, please do not hesitate to call our office @ 207-1111 Option "O" and a Customer Service Representative will help you.

And this was in the attachment:
GENERAL REPAIRS

Requirements:

Must be obtained by the Homeowner or Home Improvement License Contractor
Homeowner must provide photo ID and proof of ownership
Contractor must be an authorized agent for Company
Must fill out General Repairs Application
Research address in GIS and print out map
Must provide an estimated cost of the job
This permit should cover replacement/repairs to window, doors, siding, flooring, sheetrock, etc.
NO site plan required
If there is no tampering with structural components, then there are no inspections required.
(If this address is in the Historic or a district overlay, then you must obtain approval from the appropriate agency prior to issuance of the permit.)

Interesting. So I guess I should have gotten permits for my years of home improvement. Go figure...

Hey...if you got away with it, score one for you. But with the way my luck is...I'd end up paying massive fines if I don't follow the rules. That's just the way my cards have been stacked all my life though.

I try to play by the rules. If I had known I would have gotten a permit... oh well.
