I'm curious how you were able to sell this to your council? Here, if I ask for a plan drawn to scale and dimensioned in metric I'm seen as a big bad meany and costing the little guy money. I can't see them letting us, even though in many cases they should, charge people for our time.Bturk said
Mods are $535.00 + staff time on an hourly basis.
Absolutely. Your base fee gets you a pre-submittal meeting, a staff review of up to 1.5 hours, and the first Plan Commission meeting. After that, you get charged an hourly rate based upon the level of the staff person doing your review.donk said:Is it a function of how the department is funded?
It can be feast or famine, but we tend to project revenue low. The numbers I quoted dont even count our Engineering Dept's charge-outs.donk said:What do you do in a year where developmentis slow and fees are low, does your budget come out of general revenues then?
Sorry to ask all of these questions, this is an area of interest of mine.
