MCER 9-05:  PROPOSED DEPARTMENT OF PERMITTING SERVICES REGULATION - Schedule of Fees for Permits, Licenses and Inspections

 

SUMMARY:  The proposed regulation in general increases by 6.4% permit and license fees that cover the administration, plan-review, and enforcement programs of the Department of Permitting Services.  Since the current policy of increasing fees for inflation is insufficient to cover department cost increases, a change in revenue policy which would link fee increases more closely to labor cost increases is being proposed.  New fees added to the executive regulation are:  fees for small land disturbing activities other than the construction of a primary building or addition on a single family residential lot that do not require the use of an engineered sediment control plan as determined by the department; and fees for review and approval of  stormwater management as-built plans.  Section VII, Indexing of Fees to Labor Cost Increases, has also been added.  Revisions to clarify existing fees have been made throughout the executive regulation.  The regulation would supersede Executive Regulation 14-03.
