Hearing set on proposal to hike city's building fees
The hearing is scheduled to get underway at 5:45 p.m. in the Aldermanic Chambers on the third floor of City Hall.
• The cost for certificates of compliance for dwelling units would jump from $35 to $50, and for rooming units from $15 to $25 per unit.
• Cost of an unaccompanied inspection would increase from $50 to $100 per inspection.
• The existing fee of $200 for zoning fees, such as variances, special exceptions, equitable waivers and rehearings, would rise to $350.
LaFreniere estimates that the proposed increases could generate an additional $72,000 in permit fees, an additional $92,000 in certificate of compliance fees, an additional $20,000 in Planning Board application fees, and an additional $38,000 in Zoning Board of Adjustment fees, for a total of $222,000 in additional revenues if all the proposed changes were adopted. The enhanced revenue estimates were generated using calendar year 2013 as a baseline.
