Mayor Caldwell signed Bill 15 into Ordinance 13-16, which would increase certain permit fees at the Department of Planning and Permitting. Of particular concern to BIA members, Ord. 13-16 adds a fee of 20% of the value of the permit as a plan review fee, in addition to the building permit fee. BIA’s government relations committee had worked with DPP Director and Deputy Director, and submitted testimony during the entire process, recommending they consider other options. Unfortunately, despite BIA’s efforts, Bill 15 is now law.
