Contractor Registration

The City of Manvel uses MyGov as its primary contractor management tool. Within the dashboard, contractors can view projects, pay invoices, and schedule inspections. MyGov is NOT a submission tool. DO NOT upload applications or business documentation to the MyGov portal. To register with MyGov, contractors must sign up as a Collaborator.

Apply as a contractor with the City of Manvel:

  • Complete a Contractor Permit, including the licensed contractor's name, telephone number, and the email associated with their MyGov portal.
  • Submit a valid, current license and, if applicable, the specialty license (e.g. Electrical, Mechanical, Plumbing, HVAC).
  • Submit a Certificate of Insurance (COI) for liability with a coverage amount of at least one (1) million dollars.

Contractor information, applications, and plans must be submitted electronically by email to permits@cityofmanvel.com.
