  • If anyone on your job site has reported or displayed any flu, cold or virus symptoms, do not call in an inspection. The City of Wolfforth is following SafeBuilt’s safety protocol and, if the Building Inspector is on site and any personnel appear to be symptomatic of flu, cold or virus, he has been instructed to leave the job site without completing the inspection.  This may result in the issuance of a RED TAG until he can go back out and safely perform the inspections. 
  • RED TAG fee is $70.00 and must be paid before another inspection will be scheduled.
BUILDING CODES – EFFECTIVE 4/1/2019Effective 4/1/2019, construction in the City of Wolfforth will be regulated by the following as amended by Ordinance No. 523:

Construction Permits
The City requires construction permits on new construction and on additions or remodels and follows the 2012 International Building Code. Builders are responsible for permits, and building plans must be submitted and reviewed before any permit will be issued. Submittals for both commercial and residential new construction require one set of construction plans to be uploaded to the customer portal. In addition, a Res-check, and stormwater management plan applications. Incomplete applications will not be processed. For complete applications, please allow 5 business days for processing.

Permits are issued for 180 days. Although all work does not have to be completed, the project must show progress.  Failure to begin construction within 180 days will cancel the permit.

Please be aware that some neighborhoods require proof of architectural review approval before a construction permit may be issued. Check with the developer or contact 806-855-4134 for the list of neighborhoods.

Inspections are performed Monday-Friday, and will be completed the next business day after the inspection is called in. We do not offer same-day inspections. The Building Inspector is not available on weekends. Inspection requirements and information may be obtained at City Hall or from the Building Inspectors. Call 806-855-4134 for information.
