How do I replace a water heater or furnace?
  • Replacing or installing a water heater or furnace requires a building permit.  
  • Access the Citizenserve Portal, which can always be accessed by selecting the Apply for a Permit graphic link underneath the pictures on the home page.  
    • This will take you to the Citizenserve portal, then select Building Permit, enter account information or create an account, and then submit your application information.  You will also be able to pay for your permit, schedule inspections, and view the status of your permit through the same system.  
  • If you have any questions, you may contact the Building Department at (831)386-5925.  If you need assistance, it is recommended to schedule an appointment.  
  • If you need information about Building Code requirements, you may access the King City Municipal Code in the Quick Links at the bottom of the home page.  The Building Code can be found in Chapter 12.  
  • The Building & Safety Department page includes a handout with information related to roof repairs (PDF), which can always be found under the Government global navigation tab at the top of the home page, then select City Departments > Building Department & Safety > Building Department Handouts
