Permit and Inspection Fee Schedule
Application, Permit and Inspection fees are adopted by Town Council, typically in association with the update of the International Fire Code adoption. The most recent adopted fees may be found on the fee schedule.
Application fees are assessed for all permit applications, including construction, operational and special use type permits. Application fees are listed on application forms, or can be found on the full fee schedule. To access permit application forms, see Plan Submittal and Permit Applications.
Construction Permit Fees
Fire Alarm, Fire Sprinkler (including underground fire lines and alternative extinguishing systems), Firefighter Air Replenishment Systems, Smoke Exhaust Systems, and Emergency Responder Radio Systems are assessed a fee based upon the value of the work being completed. Permit fees include the first review of submitted plans associated with the permit application. Valuation table may be found on Table 107.1 of the fee schedule.
Various regulated systems are permitted by the number of panels, risers or systems. This is to facilitate managing inspections and release of project components. These include permits for fire alarm, sprinklers, pumps, access control, gates, kitchen hoods, and others. These can be identified on the construction permit application.
Operational Permit Fees
Operational permits allow the applicant to conduct an operation or business for which an operational permit is required by the Fire Code. Operational permits must be obtained and inspected before the permitted operation may begin. The operational permits are in addition to construction permits required for the initial installation.
Those operations that require construction permits prior to installation include CO2 beverage dispensing systems, hazardous materials, high-piled storage, LP-as, and spraying and dipping.
Operational permits must be renewed either annually or per use.
Common Operational Permits that are required to be obtained by the business prior to a Certificate of Occupancy being issued include but are not limited to:
- Places of Assembly – where occupant load is 50 or greater
- CO2 beverage dispensing – where the onsite storage is greater than 100 pounds.
- High piled Storage
- Hazardous Materials
- Firefighter Air Replenishment Systems
- Fuel Dispensing Facilities
- Propane Cylinder Exchange Service
- Repair Garages
Working Without a Permit
All work performed on a life safety system that is required to have a permit, where a permit has not been issued or released by the Fire Marshal's Office, the contractor will be assessed a fee - two times the permit fee.
Any regulated system, whether a permit has been issued or not, that is placed in operation or released to the owner or owner representative without a final acceptance, the installing contractor will be charged a fee – two times the permit fee. This fee may be assessed in addition to working without a permit.
Inspection and Re-Submittal Fees
All permit fees include the initial system acceptance inspection. However, additional fees may be accessed if the initial inspection fails, the contractor no-shows for an inspection, or if a scheduled inspection is canceled with less than 24 hours’ notice.
All plan reviews that require second and subsequent reviews will be charged additional fees as noted in the fee schedule. In addition, any installation that requires an additional review by our engineering staff as determined by the inspector, based upon differences in the approved plans and actual install, will be charged the re-submittal fee.
Other fees may apply. For a full list of fees, please see the fee schedule.
