Does the City enforce ADA and / or State of Texas handicapped accessibility requirements?

State law regulates handicapped accessibility. All work falling under the scope of the Texas Accessibility Standards must be reviewed/inspected by a State licensed accessibility contractor. It is the owner/architect/project manager’s responsibility to secure the services of the State licensed contractor. The City will require verification to be submitted, showing compliance with State law. As a courtesy, the City can provide a list of inspectors who perform this service.
