Fire Codes and various City Ordinances require the acquisition of a Fire Permit before some activities are allowed. Permits are used by local, state, and federal agencies to assure that a potentially dangerous or very important activity is conducted according to life and safety codes and standards. The Fire Department permits generally require a pre-planning meeting or submittal, and an on-site inspection of the activity by a Fire Department Inspector.
The fees required for permits are based on the administrative cost for reviewing, issuing, and inspecting. Every year the Weatherford City Council reviews and adopts the permit fee schedule which is used to determine the cost of the various permits issued by the City Departments.
