On Monday 8/7/2012, the Frisco City Council approved the new fence ordinance to include galvanized steel post on all new and replacement wood fence over 4-feet tall. This new ordinance is effective immediately. Hence, any new permits requested for new or replacement wood fence would require galvanized steel posts.
