Section R108.3 of the International Residential Code is hereby amended
to read as follows:
"The city council shall set
plan review fees, permit fees and costs for inspections or additional plan
review by resolution. The determination of value or valuation under any of the
provisions of this Code shall be made by the Building Official. The value to
be used in computing the building permit and building plan review fees shall
be the total estimated current value of all labor, materials, contractor’s
overhead and profit, whether paid for or not, for the construction work for
which the permit is issued, as well as all finish work, painting, roofing,
electrical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning, elevators, fire extinguishing
systems, on-site storm drainage systems and improvements and any other
permanent equipment. For the purposes of obtaining a plan review and setting
the initial review fee, the applicant shall provide an estimate of the
project’s valuation on their application. If in the opinion of the building
official the estimated valuation is not accurate, the building official shall
adjust the valuation and any review fee difference shall be paid by or to the
applicant prior to issuance of the permit. A project’s final valuation shall
be set by the building official, who shall develop, keep current and base
their computations on a Current Valuation Table."
When you submit your permit application, you will pay a plan
review fee based on your estimated project value. Before the permit is issued

permit fee, the required state fee and any other incidental fees.
