Elevation certificates are issued for areas in Texas that are deemed to be at high elevation, but the state has no authority to issue them.
The state only allows counties to issue elevation certificates, though.
And in Austin, the elevation certificate has no direct connection to elevation.
“I don’t think that this has anything to do with elevation certificates,” said Patrick DeGruen, Austin’s public information officer.
“This has been a long-standing process, and I think that we have a very good process in place for that.”
In order to receive an elevation certificate, an elevation commission must approve the area and the elevation plan for the area.
The commission can then make recommendations on the amount of land in an area and what elevation will be maintained.
It can’t actually issue the elevation certificates itself.
The elevation certificate was first issued in January, 2015, and is valid until the end of 2019.
In Austin, it’s only valid for a few counties.
A spokesperson for the county of Austin, Travis County, said it only issues the certificates in certain areas that have been certified by the elevation commission.
It also said that if an area is not certified by an elevation authority, it must be evaluated by the county’s public lands department to determine whether it meets the county standards.
When the county first issued the elevation elevation certificate in 2015, the county did not have a way to check its progress.
Austin has had no new land to set aside since the issuance of the certificate.
Austin City Council member Dan Calabrese said that in order to make sure the county has not moved up, the city would have to look at the city’s land.
“That’s a big concern for us, because that’s the area that has been the most in trouble, in terms of land,” Calabresel said.
“The elevation certificates have made it difficult for us to be able to look over to the next county, and be able look at our land and make sure that we’re making it safe for our future growth and development.”
