City of Dripping Springs Will Reduce or Waive Building Permit Fees to Assist Flood Victims

DRIPPING SPRINGS, TEXAS – May 16, 2019 – The Dripping Springs City Council at their May 14th meeting, unanimously passed a resolution that authorizes Mayor Todd Purcell to reduce or waive building permit fees related to disaster repair and construction.

The Mayor will review reduction or waiver requests for applicants who meet the following criteria:

The applicant is applying for a building permit for work on property damaged by a natural disaster or an emergency as determined by the City Council or the Mayor.

The applicant is applying solely to repair or construct based on damages caused by the natural disaster or emergency.

The applicant applied for a fee reduction or waiver at the time of building permit application or at the time of the Mayoral or Council declaration of disaster or emergency.

The building permit application is filed within ninety (90) days of the declaration of the natural disaster or emergency by the Mayor or through a resolution of City Council

If approved, the building permit fee reduction for residential construction will be up to the full amount of the building permit fee. The building permit fee reduction for commercial construction will be in the amount of twenty percent of the building permit fee.

The resolution comes after a major flooding event occurred on May 4, 2019 which caused extensive damage to private and public property. “This will make the rebuilding process a little less stressful for our neighbors who were affected by the flood,” Mayor Todd Purcell said. 

The resolution gives the Mayor authority to provide the aforementioned assistance with any future disaster or emergency determined by the Dripping Springs City Council. To apply for a reduction or waiver, click here for the application.
