Yes, in some cases. The city has a one (1) mile extraterritorial jurisdiction from the city limit. Permitting for signs, subdivisions (subdividing of land), non-point source pollution permits, and water quality is done through the city.
For properties outside the city limit connected to the city's water or wastewater system, a plumbing permit is required form the city.
Building, electrical, mechanical, and other related permits are not issued by the city; however, it is recommended that you contact the Burnet County offices for permitting requirements.
