City Council unanimously voted to approve revisions to Chapter 24 of the City of Lakeway’s Code of Ordinances (Code) at this past Monday’s Special City Council Meeting (August 26, 2019). This chapter of the Code focuses largely on building regulations as it relates mainly to residential structures. The revisions were initiated due to a new state law.
During the 2019/2020 session of the Texas Legislature, HB 2439 was passed by legislators. The new law prohibits or limits the city’s regulation authority over the use or installation of a building product or material of a residential or commercial building. While the revisions are a requirement, the City of Lakeway also made changes that will simplify the rules and promote consistency throughout all of the city’s Code of Ordinances.
Some changes you may notice as a result of the revisions:
