Your inspector wants a footing to be deeper than any frost can be in your area. some times a footing isn't required and you can just rent one of the augers dig a hole slide in a cardboard tube and fill it with concrete. You use a post saddle with a tail to set in the concrete. If a footing is required you have to dig a much bigger hole and poor a square box full of concrete at the bottom of the tube. This would be done to spead the weight load. Ask the inspector to make clear what he needs. After you have prepared the hole and you are ready to pour concrete. he will want to see it first.
