WCCHD Environmental Health Division Rolls Out New Permitting System

February 2, 2022 – Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD) has launched a new permitting and inspection software, MyPermitNow. The software will consolidate permit application submittal, plan review and inspection experience for customers through convenient online services. The software will be utilized for retail food establishments, restaurants, commercial pool/spa inspections, childcare facilities, and individuals applying for foster care inspections.

The MyPermitNow software will give customers the option to skip the trip to the office in-person and begin applying for permits and other services online, such as requesting inspections, submitting files, downloading inspection reports and approved plans, checking the status of a permit, and more.

“Our new software is vital to protecting Williamson County’s food and commercial pool safety. Customers can now submit applications online, which saves time and money,” said Lori Murphy, WCCHD Environmental Health Division Director. “Businesses can easily communicate with the Health District in the messaging center, and we are now able to provide the most requested service of accepting online payments.”

More information on MyPermitNow software can be found at www.wcchd.org/healthy_spaces/food_establishment_permits.php or call the Environmental Health Restaurant and Retail Food Assistance Hotline 512-248-7600 Monday – Thursday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Customers may still obtain permits and other services in-person at the WCCHD Environmental Health Services office at 355 Texas Ave., Round Rock, TX 78664.
