Building and Inspection

Building and Health Permit and Inspections - Code Enforcement


We currently contract with Bureau Veritas for most of the City's high volume of residential and commercial building inspections. We also contract with CURT Services for all of the City's fire inspections and fire plan reviews. ALL permits and applications are processed through the Planning Department at 405 Main Street, Sealy, Texas and all other site plans, development plans, and code compliance reviews are performed by City Staff or the City's Engineer. 

Building Permits begin with the application for the construction or repair, along with appropriate documents required to be submitted with the application.  See Permit Applications and see Plan Review Checklists in the documents below. Master Fee Schedule.
