City of Rosenberg News Update
City Launches New Permitting and Plan Management System 
The city of Rosenberg is excited to announce the launch of the new EnerGov Citizen Self Service (CSS) online permit and plan management system.

The CSS will improve the permitting process by streamlining items such as: applying for permits, including the ability to upload required documents for review, following along the permit approval and plan review process, scheduling inspections and paying permitting fees, making it easier for citizens and contractors to work with the City.

Since the launch of the program, the EnerGov CSS has already increased process efficiency, improved interdepartmental communication, and improved accuracy in several City operational areas that process permits, licenses and various types of plan reviews and approval actions. “Previously contractors or citizens had to physically visit the City Hall Annex, bring in plans, make payments, call for inspections, and so forth. All of this can now be completed through the all-in-one online portal from the comfort of your home, office or even smartphone,” said Building Official and Director of Code Compliance Robert Kinsey.

Current capabilities available in the new system are: new residential construction, plumbing, electrical, and mechanical permits and related inspection requests, but plans are in the works to expand other online offerings in the near future.
