Dripping Springs city officials celebrated the move to a new office for both the Building Department and the Planning and Development Department with a ribbon cutting June 28.

City officials cut the ribbon with the Dripping Springs Chamber of Commerce in front of the new office, once home to the Pedernales Electric Cooperative. The building and planning departments moved into the new building in May out of Dripping Springs City Hall due to limited space.

Behind the building, the property will also house the city's Maintenance Department, likely within the next year, said Mayor Bill Foulds.

Building department officials handle building permits while planning and development department officials oversee permits as well as manage growth and development in the city.
