Lakeway City Council on Feb. 19 amended its ordinances regarding right of entry by a code compliance officer into a property to administer or enforce city building codes.
Essentially, permission to enter a private property can only be granted by the property owner, resident, tenant, lessee, or the designated agent of the owner.
The City of Lakeway is actively working to update the code of ordinances to better meet the expectations of the Lakeway community.
This update specifically focuses on:
- What projects will require a permit.
- Simplification of the permitting process.
- Updating and clarifying City Building Code requirements.
