Inspection process changes will reduce wait times.
Hundreds of properties in Killeen experienced damage to water service lines and pipes because of the hard and prolonged freeze that began February 11, 2021. To speed recovery efforts, the City of Killeen is waiving plumbing permit fees until further notice for repairs related to the winter storm.
Plumbers must still apply for permits and can do so online at KilleenTexas.gov/Permit, by email to BuildingPermits@KilleenTexas.gov, by fax to 254-501-6302 or in person at 100 E. Avenue C. Approvals will be expedited.
The inspection process is also changed for these permits to reduce wait times. Plumbers may submit proof of final repair digitally rather than having to schedule an inspector to witness it.
Questions related to the permitting process can be directed to the Building Inspections Division at 254-501-7763 or the email address above.
