Permit Types

UPDATE: The health and safety of our residents and employees is very important to us. Although overall risk in Texas is still low, we are doing our part to keep our Hutto family healthy.

All permit inspections in occupied residences are suspended until futher notice. Emergency situations and commercial permits will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Please note, this does not suspend the need for permitting and inspection overall.

We appreciate your understanding. For questions, please contact the City of Hutto Building Department at 512-846-2640.
