Jun 29, 2017 7:00 PM Video City Council Regular Meeting

Community Development Director Patrice Ruffin explained as part of the Community Development Department's summary included with the 2017 budget report, the department indicated the desire for inclusion of a re-submittal fee for building permits, land disturbance permits, and subdivision plan reviews that have been re-submitted multiple times for review. The addition of the re-submittal fee allowed the City to recover costs for projects that consistently failed to address applicable City codes.

In addition, the department was also proposing general fee updates. She named sign re-facing, related to panel replacement fees which would be a reduced fee, building permit fees, and electronic plan review fee. She noted the new fence fee indicating that there was no fee for that type of permit, and minor text edits and moving of fees under appropriate division. This update was presentation to City Council. It would be posted at City Hall front counter and on the City's website tomorrow, which would meet the at least 45 days before the change was to take effect (Per Section 2-177 of City of Brookhaven Code) The effective day of the fee schedule would be Monday, August 14, 2017.

Mayor Ernst asked if there were any questions. There was none.
