A permit is required for all construction projects within the city.
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.
Permit fees vary widely depending on whether it is a residential or commercial project, and whether a utility connection is required or not.

An impact fee is a one-time payment made to the political subdivision (city, water or utility district) by a developer of a new development to pay for the cost of construction or expansion of water and sewer facilities located outside the boundaries of the new development and that are needed by new development and its impact on the surrounding community.
Impact fees redistribute who pays for the new or expanded infrastructure. Impact fees shift the burden of system expansion as a result to new development to the new customers. Without impact fees, the expansion of existing facilities or the construction of new facilities (that are off-site of the development) would be paid using water and sewer utility rates, thus placing the financial burden on all existing and new customers.
The process is set out in state law (Texas Local Government Code Ch. 395).
0.5 * Total Cost of capital improvements required to serve new development in the service areaImpact Fee = ___________________________________________________________________________________________ Total number of new service units expected in the service area over the next 10 year period

Inspections are conduction within 24 to 48 hours after the request is made on MyPermitNow or after the call is received on our inspection line.
Applicants can view the inspection results online at MyPermitNow, or by email or phone call. The inspector will also leave a Building Inspection Report indicating approved, corrections required, correct and proceed, or failed. If the inspection failed, the Building Inspection Report will include the corrections to be made and a re-inspection if needed.
There are no inspection fees, on re-inspection fees.
The re-inspection fee for a new residence is $35. Remodel fees for residential and commercial are $100 for each trip the inspector may make to the construction site.

The Fire Marshal inspects the fire sprinklers, alarms, smoke control systems, and fire exits. The Fire Department will assess the type of construction, contents of the building, adequacy of fire protection equipment, and risks posed by adjoining buildings.
Your facility will need to be inspected only if there is a "change of use" for the building.
For example, if a building was previously used as a retail shop and now it is a restaurant, the building needs to pass inspection by the Fire Marshal and Building Official to ensure the building meets the current building codes and city ordinance(s) and is safe for its new use. If a new tenant comes into the building and the use is the same or similar, no inspections need to be conducted. A certificate of occupancy will be issued to the new tenant.
The final inspection is conducted after the building and site is finished and ready for occupancy.
A Certificate of Occupancy is a document issued by the City of Marble Falls certifying a building's compliance with applicable building codes and city ordinances, and indicating it to be in a condition suitable for occupancy.
You can request a copy of an incident either in person or by mail. All requests need to be in writing and contain information such as date of offense and party involved.
