The City of Kingsville’s Building Service’s primary responsibility is to inspect newly constructed/remodeled and existing buildings as well as the various utilities that comprise each (electrical systems, plumbing and mechanical) to insure that minimum standards are upheld to safeguard the safety and welfare of our citizens’ lives and health.

These responsibilities are upheld through the regulation and control of the construction practices, designs, material quality, location and most importantly, the maintenance of all structures located within Kingsville. We provide the necessary information to our citizens regarding building and living standardizations. We also provide inspection services, which fall under public ordinances to assure that the highest quality of our citizens’ health, safety and welfare are satisfied.

The Building Services Department also inspects and reviews construction projects to ensure that practices are proceeding according to approved plans as well as conditions of approval. Our building inspectors also determine if all code standards are up to regulatory approval. This process guarantees the safety and well-being of all participating parties involved.

Several of the services we provide are as follows:

  • Building Inspections
  • Issuing Permits
  • Maintaining Records
