Gas & Electrical Releases

Utilities Inspection (Electric, Electrical Re-connect, and Gas)
Prior to authorizing gas and electrical service at an address, a project must receive a final inspection from the city.

This includes:
  • New construction;
  • Remodels/alterations/additions where power had to be disconnected;
  • Repairs to existing service (reconnect); and
  • New occupancy in an existing building or structure. 

A final inspection is part of a permit application process submitted for the type of work being performed. Upon approval of the final gas and electrical inspection city staff will notify Texas Gas Service, AEP or Magic Valley Coop Energy that the property is authorized for service. 

Energy Providers
Energy Providers The owner / applicant must request service with their energy provider before electrical service can be initiated. It is helpful to the process if this request is made before the city notifies AEP, Magic Valley Coop Energy or Texas Gas Service.
