Building Permit Fees


Valuation is based on estimated costs for the total project's materials and labor.

For New Construction & Additions:
Valuation is figured by averaged square foot costs which are updated every February and August and are in the table below.

For Remodels, Basement Finishes, Decks, Etc:
Valuation is based on a good faith estimate of materials &
labor. If you are doing the work yourself, the valuation is double the cost of materials.
