Houston Permitting Center Moves Services

The Houston Permitting Center is moving most services online beginning Monday, March 23. The Permitting Center is doing this to maintain operations while protecting the community by reducing the number of customers in waiting areas.

   - Fire Prevention permits (Houston Fire Department)
   - Auto Dealers & Identification (Houston Police Department)
   - Boiler Operator's Testing
   - Stationary Engineer's Testing
