Permits are required for the following activities:
On November 7, 2017, Tioga voters passed a measure to legalize the legal sale of all alcoholic beverages including mixed beverages. A permit must be obtained from both the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission and the City of Tioga before any business may sell alcoholic beverages.
Permits must be obtained before constructing any variety of projects including, but not limited to, residential dwellings, accessory buildings, swimming pools, signs and commercial buildings. Permits are also required for remodeling and additions. While some projects may not require a permit, they are subject to the rules and regulations of Ordinance 259, commonly known as the planning and zoning ordinance, and the International Building Codes which have been adopted by the City.
The City contracts with Countywide Inspection Services to perform construction plan review and building inspections. The inspection request line phone number is 1-855-220-0470.
