Contractors must be registered in the new MyGov Portal with the City before a permit can be submitted.
The Building Permit Process aims to ensure that all residential and commercial developments within the city meet applicable building and development codes. The City of Kemah is making it easier for citizens and contractors to connect with us. We are now using MyGov to manage contractor registrations and permits, and you can create a contractor account to apply for and participate in projects with the City all online. Applicants should keep in mind that the process may vary slightly depending on the complexity of their requests.
