At the recommendation of county manag— ' er Jim Hedges and the University of Geor- gia’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government (CVIOG), commissioners approved by a 4-0 vote to double the cost of a building permit application fee, raising it from $50 to $100. Commissioners also increased the cost of getting a residential and commercial single trade permit fee from $25 to $40. They also raised the fee for getting a driveway permit by four times from $25 to $100. Commissioners also approved by a 4—0 vote to increase building inspection fees for residential and commercial properties from $0.16 per square-foot to $0.43 per square- foot. While commissioners agreed to cap residential building fees at a maximum of $2,000, commissioners put no cap on the' cost of commercial building fees. How- ever, the board did agree to work with the Development Authority of Monroe County on a case-by—case basis on determining building inspection fees for large industrial or distribution properties. Hedges said the permit fee will enable the customer to re- ceive seven building inspection visits during construction, a building code compliance certificate and a certificate of occupancy. At Carl Vinson Institute’s recommendation, commissioners initially considered using Building Valuation Data from the Interna- tional Code Council (ICC), which provides an average construction cost per square foot by construction classification, as a means for determining building inspection fees. However, District 1 commissioner Larry Evans said he preferred sticking with the per square-foot cost model the county has previ- ously used because the ICC method totals are subject to fluctuations in the economy. Evans first proposed raising the rate to $0.36 per square-foot, but District 3 commissioner John Ambrose and chairman Greg Tapley swayed the board to consider the higher amount of $0.43 per square-foot. With the change, the building inspection fee for a 3,000 square-foot residential home jumps from $480 to $1,290, an increase of $810. Also, for example, the building inspec- tion fee for a 50,000 square-foot commer— cial complex would go up from $8,000 to $21,500, an increase of $13,500. In addition, commissioners established a new plan review fee for commercial custom— ers that will charge $150 for any building 1 to 5,000 square feet in size, $300 for any build— ing 5,001 to 10,000 square feet, $450 for any building 10,001 to 15,000 square feet, $600 for any building 15,001 to 20,000 square feet and $600 plus $50 for each additional 10,000 square feet for any building in excess of 20,000 square feet. Hedges said Monroe County has been charging the same amounts for building inspections and permits for more than a decade and those fees are lower than those of its surrounding counties. Hedges said raising the fees should enable the building department to break even next year. All fees adjusted or created on Dec. 17 will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2020. District 2 commissioner Eddie Rowland said the reason for the fee hikes is so that the persons doing the building are the ones pay- ing for the inspections rather than have the building department continue to be subsi- dized by property taxes. “We’re (commissioners) not looking for a revenue stream,” Rowland said. “We’re look- ing for this department to pay for itself’ According to Carl Vinson Institute data, the Monroe County building inspection de- partment has brought in between $131,000 and $135,000 in revenue in each of the past three years. Just over $169,000 was appro- priated in the 2020 budget for the building inspection department. However, Hedges said the actual cost of operating the county’s building inspection department is just over $253,000 due to capital needs like a new truck and new computer softWare. Accord- ing to the county’s 2018 audit by Mauldin 8r Jenkins, the county lost nearly $40,000 in 2018 on the building department. District 4 commissioner George Emami was absent from the Dec. 17 meeting.
