Calumet City is a city in Cook County Illinois, 19 miles south of the Chicago Loop, with a population estimated at 37,000. Calumet City was founded in 1893 when the villages of Schrumville and Sobieski Park merged under the name of West Hammond. In addition to being bordered to the east by Hammond, it is also bordered by Burnham and Chicago to the north, Lansing to the south, and South Holland and Dolton to the west. The early community consisted mainly of German Lutheran farmers and depended heavily on the factories and commerce of Hammond. The area has a rich history in gambling and illegal waterholes as Al Capone built on the base during early prohibition periods in 1916. Because of this bad reputation, the city changed its name to Calumet City and the community has since grown into the prosperous community it is today.
The Department of Inspectional Services was formed in 1996 by the City to coordinate services for the building, housing and fire prevention bureau for a more efficient handling of inspection and procedures for new construction, remodeling, rental occupancies, complaints relating to property conditions, flood plain issues and zoning.
