Determining Fees
Fees for most permits are calculated by determining the value added to the property or the cost of construction.

This value is used with the fee tables as published in the appropriate code governing the work. 

Flat Fees
There are some routine items that are “flat fee” permits such as fences, seasonal or temporary pools, and non-covered decks between 1-300 square feet in size.

How to get a Quote
We are happy to help estimate the permit fees for a project but until an application is submitted and reviewed an exact fee cannot be given.

All fees are calculated by the building official.
