Are building permits expensive?
The cost of most permits are based upon the construction value of the project. Residential permit fees are ten dollars ($10) for the first one thousand dollars ($1000) of construction value and two dollars ($2) for each additional thousand plus ten dollars ($10) for each inspection required. Some permits are flat fee based. Fence and shed permits are ten dollars ($10) each and most swimming pool permits are thirty-five dollars ($35) each plus an inspection fee. Please call City Hall for specific fee information.
