Plan Review & Permitting

The Fire Marshal’s Office conducts reviews of site plans, construction plans, and specifications to the 2018 International Code Council (ICC) Fire Code and the related codes and standards referenced therein. We also conduct inspections to verify compliance with the project design codes and standards.

We are also in the process of moving our plans submittals, reviews, and inspections requests electronically to the MyPermitNow system. The new process will give developers a one-stop location for all of Hays County plans submittals, permits, and inspections.
