Building Division now accepting credit cards for payment of most building permits
The Building Division is excited to announce they will be accepting credit cards starting January 3rd 2012. Payments must be made in person (no credit cards will be taken over the phone or via fax) and will be accepted for contractor registrations, reinspection fees and some building permits fees.
Building permit fees may be paid via credit card with the exception of:
- Utility water/sewer tap permits
- Fire department permits
- New residential or commercial permits
- Tenant finish permits (remodel permits may be paid with credit cards)
Please contact the building division with any questions you may have.
Building Permit Fees
Did you know that you can present a copy of a building permit when purchasing construction materials for your permitted project so that the local sales tax will NOT be charged? The following link has further information:
Building Permit Use Tax Information
Please be aware that payment of tap fees is required at the time the Building Permit is issued. As already required, if the building use changes in the future, tap fees will be recalculated and additional tap fees may be due. Be sure to install and activate water meters as soon as possible to lock in the tap fee.
