The measurement shall include garages and the farthest projections, overhangs
and cantilevers from the ground to the top of the construction. It shall
not include unroofed or unenclosed porches or patios.

MOVING OF BUILDINGS
The fee for a building permit for the removal of a building or structure from
one lot to another or to a new location on the same lot shall be at the rate of
twelve cents ($0.12) per one hundred dollars ($100.00) of the estimated cost of
moving plus the cost of new foundations and all work necessary to place the
building or structure in its completed condition in the new location, plus such
other building permit fees deemed necessary by the Building Commissioner.
The demolition shall be seventy-seven dollars ($77.00) per structure.
There is hereby established a reinspection charge of thirty dollars
($30.00), which shall be applicable to all reinspections, where it has been
determined that the initial inspection resulted in a failure to comply with the
applicable construction code, that the initial inspection reveals that the scope
of work performed has deviated from the plans submitted to the City, or upon the
request of the owner or contractor for any reinspection.
Each building permit issued by the Building Commissioner shall state upon its
face the expiration date of said permit. All work authorized by the permit
shall be completed no later than 5 p.m. C.S.T. on the expiration date of the
permit. Each applicant shall notify the Building Commissioner of the date
of completion of the work authorized by the permit prior to the expiration of
the permit. The Building Commissioner shall perform a final inspection of
each project within fourteen (14) days after the expiration of the permit or the
completion of the work, whichever is earlier. An inspection fee shall be
assessed in the amount of thirty dollars ($30.00) for each final inspection
and the fee shall be paid by the applicant. Additionally, all extra costs,
fees, permit fees, and other expenses shall be paid by the applicant within
thirty (30) days from the date of the final inspection.
(a) In addition to the building permit fee and inspection fees, all
reasonable costs or fees charged to the City, including but not limited to site
and building plan review, inspection and permit fees, reinspection fees,
engineer fees, architecture review fees, other professional fees, and testing
fees, as deemed necessary by the Building Commissioner, shall be paid by the
applicant before issuance of the building permit, the final occupancy permit, or
the final completion certificate.
(b) A plan review escrow procedure is hereby authorized to be formulated, implemented and amended by City staff to help ensure that all such
costs charged to the City are recovered by the applicants.
(c) In the event that the City receives an application, petition or other
request for any administrative or legislative consideration, and the applicant,
petitioner or requestor owes the City any amounts from previous City
consideration including any third-party expenses the City has incurred, the City
reserves the right to refuse to give any consideration to such application,
petition or request until such time that the City has received payment in full
or payment terms acceptable to the City.
(d) In the event that it is necessary for the Building Commissioner to
undertake an inspection or other professional investigation in order to confirm
or deny the existence of a building code or zoning violation, the owner of the
property shall be liable for all inspection fees, all reasonable costs or fees
charged to the City, including, but not limited to, site and building plan
review, inspection and permit fees, and testing fees as deemed necessary by the
Building Commissioner. In the event that it is determined that no building
code or zoning violation exists on the subject property, the owner of the
property shall not be liable for any inspection fees, costs, or expenses.
(e) Any person or entity that fails to pay the necessary permit fees,
inspection fees, or additional costs as contained in this Code shall be deemed
as violating the City Code and subject to the penalties contained in Section
100.100, or any other applicable section of the City Code.
The building permit fees provided for in Sections 500.300 through 500.307
above shall be doubled where work for which a building permit is required in
Section 500.140 is commenced prior to obtaining the permit of filing of the
application. The payment of such double fees shall not relieve any person
from fully complying with all provisions regulating such construction.
The Building Commissioner may cancel permits and refund the permit fee less
expenses incurred and a maximum penalty of twenty dollars ($20.00) or such
lesser amount as the Building Commissioner shall set.
