The reason for creating the Building and Standards Commission is to comply with State law. The Texas Local Government Code, Chapters 54 and 214, addresses how to bring buildings into compliance with the minimum property maintenance code.
The previous Housing Board of Adjustment and Appeals dated back to 1981 and dealt only with residential structures. The newly created Building and Standards Commission will be able to address any buildings in the City.
