Permit Fees Waived for Storm Damage and Streamline Inspection Process
The City of Brenham, Development Services Department acknowledges that many Brenham residents and property owners have experienced damage from the winter storm. As a result, the department is taking additional steps to ensure that customers experience the quickest and efficient process available during these difficult times.
Firstly, the City of Brenham will waive all permit fees for repairs related to storm damage. This includes plumbing, electrical, mechanical, and general building permit fees for damage incurred from the storm. Permits for in-kind or like-for-like replacement will be automatically issued by the Development Services office and can be issued at City Hall Monday-Friday from 8 am to 5 pm at 200 W Vulcan Street. For additional information contact Sarah Hill at 979-337-7220.
Additionally, to streamline the inspection process, contractors may email photos of the repairs to the building department for review and to satisfy the inspection process. All photos of work to be inspected should include the following:
- permit number
- property address
- contact information for the contractor or homeowner who completed the work
For additional information, please contact Allen Jacobs, Building Official, at 979-337-7214.
Most reported damages are related to burst and broken pipes from the harsh temperatures. Attached is a contact list of licensed plumbers and irrigators who are registered with the City of Brenham and have recently pulled permits with the City.
