A penalty fee may be assessed for starting work without a permit.  The penalty fee shall be the same amount as the standard fee, but not less than $ 500, except for electrical work which shall have a minimum penalty fee of $1,000. The penalty fee shall be paid in addition to the standard fee. In cases where a permit fee was legally waived, the penalty fee shall be assessed upon the above criteria as if the standard fee had been assessed.

Administration Fees

An administrative fee of $30 shall be charged on all requested permit refunds for issued Electrical, HVAC, Refrigeration, Range Hood and Manufactured Fireplace Appliance permits. There shall be a permit extension fee charge of $35 for every approved request to reactivate an expired permit within 180 days of the expiration date. Requests after this period will be subject to full permit fee.
