MCER NO. 11-06:  PROPOSED DEPARTMENT OF PERMITTING SERVICES REGULATION - Permit Fees and Requirements Related to Construction Debris Reclamation Facility - Method 2

 

SUMMARY:  The proposed regulation increases permit, license and certificate fees 6.7% as required by Executive Regulation 10-05 Permit Fees and Requirements Related to Construction Debris Reclamation Facility.  The Department of Permitting Services was established as a fee-supported enterprise within the executive branch of Montgomery County in 1996.  Revenues that support the department are established by Method 2 or Method 3 executive regulations and by County Council resolution.  The Department of Permitting Services may raise this fee annually, by regulation, by a percentage that does not exceed the rate of the increase (if any) in the department's approved personnel costs for the then-current fiscal year compared to the approved personnel costs for the preceding fiscal year.  These cost increases reflect negotiated labor agreements, employee-benefit cost adjustments, proficiency advancements, and other personnel cost factors.  Where possible, productivity enhancements will be made to minimize fee increases.  The proposed regulation would supersede Executive Regulation 10-05.
