My Government Online


On June 1, 2014, the City of Mont Belvieu Development Services Division launched a new online permitting software called MyPermitNow, part of the My Government Online services offered through the South Central Planning and Development Commission of Houma, LA. The software greatly enhances the permit application submittal and payment experience for contractors and residents.

Contractors and residents have the ability to: 

  • Apply online for permits and planning projects
  • Pay fees online
  • Submit plans “paperless” in PDF format
  • Track application progress up to permit issuance
  • Print copies of your permit(s) any time
  • Print reviewed building plans
  • Request inspections online
  • View and print completed inspection reports
  • Receive real-time e-mail notifications when an inspection is completed 

Additionally, MyPermitNow’s planning module will be used for all subdivision and zoning related cases, and residents can report city code violations or problems with city facilities and infrastructure using the Citizen Solution Center. 

Please take the time to download a copy of the Mygovernmentonline Customer Portal Instruction Document (PDF). You may create your free customer portal account as soon as possible if you do not already have an established account. 

The MyGovernmentOnline software will allow you to begin applying for your permits online rather than traveling to City Hall. Please note that any documents required with an application, such as Building Plans, must be uploaded in PDF format when submitting your application. 

When requesting inspections online, the policy will remain that you must submit your inspection request prior to 3 p.m. to have an inspection performed the next business day. However, same-day inspections may be available on permit request activity. Our inspectors will enter inspection results in the field which to ensure you will receive your inspection result via e-mail or through the customer portal in near real-time. 

If you need any assistance pertaining to the use of the MyGovernmentOnline software, please call the technical support line at 1-866-957-3764, option 1 for assistance. The agents can assist with any software related questions.
