Proposed Executive Regulation
MCER NO. 26-05: PROPOSED DEPARTMENT OF PERMITTING SERVICES REGULATION - Schedule of Fees for Permits, Licenses and Certifications
SUMMARY: This proposed regulation amends Executive Regulation 11-05. It adds Section I titled "Permits with MNCPPC Site Plan Approval". The new section increases fees for permits with MNCPPC site plan approval by 25 percent. On November 8, 2005, the County Council approved a special appropriation to the FY06 Operating Budget for the Department of Permitting Services for the creation of site plan enforcement inspection and review process. This special appropriation was needed to ensure that the Department of Permitting Services has sufficient resources to conduct height and setback inspections related to building permits for properties in zones that require site plan approval by the MNCPPC. All subsequent sections have been renumbered accordingly. The special appropriation also ensures that the Department of Permitting Services has the resources necessary to investigate complaints, attend administrative hearings, and represent the department in court with regard to issues arising from these inspections. Fees for well location permits subject to MNCPPC site plan approval, were also increased. This regulation, in general, sets fees that cover the administration, plan-review and enforcement programs of the Department of Permitting Services. This regulation also changes Section I. Building to Section II. Building Permits without MNCPPC Site Plan Approval. The fees for retaining walls have also been corrected. This regulation has also been revised to include information previously omitted regarding electrical permits for air conditioners. The proposed regulation would supersede Executive Regulation.11-05.
