New Permit Fee Schedule Adopted

City Council has adopted a new permit fee schedule.  The new fees effect all types of permits and are effective immediately.

Contractors should expect higher fees for remodels, accessory structures, and commercial and multi-family construction.  Fees for new single family residential construction are the same with a $100 base fee added.

Development Services Technicians have observed that the largest increase in permit fees are associated with pools.  Pool permit fees plus deposit used to be $200, where pool permit fees plus deposit are now approximately $1,000.  This is because of the base fee of $75 plus $75 per each required inspection.

General Contractors are asked to pass this information along to your pool subcontractors and all subcontractors that you may use that apply for their own permits.
