The City Permitting is a revenue neutral program. In other words, the money from your permit fee is only used to cover the operating costs of the program, not to fund any other projects.
State law requires jurisdictions to conduct all inspections and plan reviews with certified staff. Permit fees cover the costs to administer and house our knowledgeable, certified staff.
All permit fees are reviewed on an annual basis where they could increase or decrease depending on that year’s budget.
