Building Department
Building inspectors and plans examiners provide for community minimum standards to safeguard health, property, and the public welfare.  This is accomplished by regulating and controlling the design, construction, quality of materials, use and occupancy, location, and maintenance of all buildings and structures within the city.

Building permits are important in protecting your safety and the safety of those around you. The City of Taft requires permits so that it can ensure that construction is being done properly and in accordance with all life safety requirements and all building codes.

All permitting activities must be initiated at the City of Taft public counter.  Submission of plans, applications for building permits and requests for inspections are required to be originated at the Taft Building Department.  For further information or to have your questions answered contact Rena Manning at 661-763-1222, ex. 10. 

Cost of Permits

Building Permit fees are calculated using the estimated valuation of the building activity.
