It is with great sadness that we confirm the passing of Fire Chief Tim Tittle on Monday, Jan. 20, after a long and courageous fight against cancer. Chief Tittle served the Lewisville Fire Department for more than 40 years and leaves a legacy of unparalleled dedication and integrity. Lewisville has lost a good friend, and the community is a little bit lesser for his absence. Our thoughts are with the Tittle family as they grieve and with the fire services family as they strive daily to carry on the unequaled example of his life.

Single Family Rental Inspection Program


The City of Lewisville has an ordinance establishing a Single Family Rental Inspection Program, effective July 1, 2008. The program encompasses basic inspections of existing single family homes. No fee or registration for the program is currently required.

An inspection is triggered when the City receives notification by the owner/future tenant, the tenant/owner requests transfer of water services, or the City receives a complaint. Once the City is notified, an inspection of the property will be scheduled with the owner/tenant. Unless major life safety issues are found, a temporary Certificate of Occupancy will be issued even if other minor violations are found; that is, occupants can move in while minor violations are being resolved.
