Permit Valuations

The applicant for a permit shall provide an estimated permit value at the time of application. Permit valuations shall include total value of work, including materials and labor, for which the permit is being issued, such as:

  • Electrical
  • Gas
  • Mechanical
  • Plumbing equipment
  • Permanent systems

If, in the opinion of the building official, the valuation is underestimated on the application, the permit shall be denied, unless the applicant can show detailed estimates to meet the approval of the building official. Final building permit valuation shall be set by the building official based on the most recent building valuation data from the International Code Council as a minimum for new detached single-family houses.

Trade Fees

Separate fees are calculated for each of the trades: 
  • Electrical
  • Fire protection
  • General
  • Mechanical
  • Plumbing

Plan Review Fee

A plan review fee is charged for commercial projects and new single family homes, calculated at 65% of the general building permit fee that shall be paid at the time of permit issuance.

Depending on the scope of the project, separate plan review fees for electrical, plumbing and mechanical plans may be assessed in the same manner (65% of the electrical, plumbing, or mechanical permit fee calculated above).
