Rubber Stamp with Regulations

DPS is set up to operate as a self-sufficient enterprise fund with revenues from customer fees covering DPS expenses. The Department is also responsible for collecting fees for other County agencies based on codes that require certain regulations be followed for plan approval or permit issuance.

Method 2 Fee Regulations

Method 2 fee regulations are approved by County Council Resolution. Fees included are those for residential and commercial building, electrical and mechanical, fire protection, fire systems permits, licenses and fees related to zoning applications. A filing fee is due at application and the balance of fees (based on application date) is due prior to permit issuance.

Method 3 Fee Regulations

Method 3 fee regulations are approved by the County Executive. Fees included are those for right-of- way (roadway), sediment control, stormwater management, well and septic permits. A filing fee is due at application and the balance of fees (based on application date) is due prior to permit issuance. The balance of permit fee for an Engineered Sediment Control permit is due one year after permit issuance or before the final inspection, whichever comes first.

Archived Fee Regulations

Sometimes an application is received but not approved or issued until after a new fee regulation takes effect. Permitting fees are based on application date.
