Town Fees

NOTICE OF FEE ADJUSTMENTS FOR 2017

The Town of Eagle has recently conducted a thorough review of all Town Fees. The goal of the review was to determine if our fees were compatible with services offered, addressed actual costs, and were fiscally responsible. Due to the economic downturn in early 2000’s, many fees were not adjusted or updated. As we are a statutory Town, our fees must also comply with State Statute and should be adjusted and updated.

During this process, the town identified and reviewed 398 separate fees from all departments. Of those fees, it was determined that 27% (107) of them required an adjustment and all other fees were unchanged. Beginning in 2017, all town fees will be reviewed annually to adhere to statutory requirements and ensure fees are reasonable and adequate.

Click here for Exhibit A” which is the attachment to Resolution 02-2017 Adopting an Annual Fee Schedule which was adopted by the Board of Trustees on January 10th, 2017. Fee changes are highlighted and referenced to the appropriate code section or statute.

Some highlights of fee adjustments for Building Department:

  • Building Permit Fees will be increased by $11.90
  • Mechanical and Plumbing Permit Fees will change from $40 to $65
  • Planning and Zoning Fees will be increased by $50.00

Pavilion Rental Fees have not been adjusted since this facility was dedicated to the Town in 1998. Because of the popularity of this venue and its heavy use, a review of maintenance costs, time spent on facility management, needed upgrades and repairs along with a fee comparison was conducted. It was determined to keep this facility operating; an increase is necessary.
