Check acceptance

The Permit Center will not accept checks in excess of the amount due at submittal. Additionally, if you apply and pay for the wrong permit, you will not receive a full refund; $200 will be held for processing the error.

Oftentimes, customers coming to the Permit Center bring checks written for the wrong amounts. There are three reasons for errors:

  • Using the Fee Estimate report as the basis for determining fees
  • Entering incorrect information during the application process
  • Writing checks for the entire fees due when only application fees are due at submittal

This presents significant challenges for staff, presents customers with an extended refund wait time (six weeks minimum), and is very expensive for the county to process.

We encourage customers to pay online at time of submittal or complete their check once the application has been processed.

 

Process improvement

New Home Construction stormwater review 

Beginning June 1, 2022, Development Engineering will review Stormwater Minimum Requirements (MR) #1-5 for NHC/ADS building permits. The Permit Center will notify Development Engineering staff who will reach out to the applicant to start the submittal process. This is an ENG case in CC LMS and the fee is $345.00. The applicant (creator of the job) is responsible for submittals and payments. 


Rate increase

Effective May 1, 2022, building valuations will change based on the International Code Council annual update. 

Fees calculated on square footage or estimated valuations will increase. The average increase is about fifteen percent.
