Building Permits

The City of Granger currently outsources the processing and inspections of permits through The Building Department Inc., however Granger City Hall is established as the building permit office where all permits must be submitted. Building permits involve the detailed examination of building plans, calculations, and specifications for compliance with building, plumbing and mechanical codes, as well as, field inspections of all aspects of construction and its various component parts and systems.

Permits are required to construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, or demolish a building or structure; change the use of a building; or erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system and no work shall commence until a permit is issued and picked up.
