Building Inspections

The Building Inspection Department's mission is to ensure commercial buildings and residential homes constructed, altered, or maintained in the Town of Ponder meet recognized standards for quality of life and building safety. In order to facilitate this responsibility we contract with Countywide Inspection Services who provide a full range of plan review and construction inspection services to support enforcement of the International Building Codes.
