The cost-related fees identified in items (1) through (13) of this subsection have not been calculated into the permit fee(s) required under this chapter. If a cost incurred by any city department in connection with the issuance of a permit under this chapter has not been calculated into the permit fee required under this chapter, a fee in addition to such permit fee may be assessed, if applicable. Such fees which shall be assessed in addition to the permit fees required under this chapter include, but are not limited to, the following: (1) zoning fees; (2) landmarking fees; (3) open space impact fees; (4) planned development fees; (5) fees under section 2-102-080 for an official house number certificate; (6) fees under section 13-32-300(c) for the preliminary review of plans on a voluntary basis for compliance with Chapter 18-11 of this code; (7) fees for appearances before the Building Board of Appeals and Committee on Standards and Tests; (8) fees for work of any type on or under the public way, including, but not limited to, driveway permit fees, water and sewer connection fees, and scaffolding, barricading and street-closure fees; (9) plan review fees unrelated to the issuance of a permit under this chapter; (10) inspection fees unrelated to the issuance of a permit under this chapter, such as annual, semi-annual or periodic inspection fees; (11) reinspection fees unrelated to the issuance of a permit under this chapter; (12) reinspection fees related to the issuance of a permit under this chapter, if the reinspection fee is assessed for any of the following reasons: (i) a scheduled inspection did not take place because of the absence of, or other action or inaction by, the building’s owner, agent, lessee or operator; or (ii) an extra inspection of electrical work is required under Section 13-20-420; or (iii) an emergency or specially-requested inspection is conducted under Section 13-20-016; and (13) fees for optional permit services within the meaning of subsection (b) of Section 13-32-031.
If a permit is sought to install any equipment regulated by the department of health, the applicable minimum flat fee set forth in subsection (b) of section 13-32-310 shall be assessed for each piece of equipment so installed, unless all of the following requirements are met: (1) the permit fee for the work being done on any building, facility or other area where such equipment will be located is required to be calculated under subsection (a) of section 13-32-310; and (2) the piece of equipment to be installed in such building, facility or other area is clearly indicated on the drawings or plans accompanying the building permit application; and (3) any permit application or other form required by the department of health to install such piece of equipment is attached to the building permit application; and (4) the department of health reviews and approves any required drawings or plans for the installation of the piece(s) of equipment to be installed. If all of the requirements of this subsection are met, the permit fee assessed under subsection (a) of section 13-32-310 shall include the minimum flat fee that would otherwise apply to install such piece(s) of equipment. If all of the requirements of this subsection are not met, a separate permit application shall be required for the equipment and the minimum flat fee set forth in subsection (b) of Section 13-32-310 shall be assessed, as applicable, to install such piece(s) of equipment. For purposes of this subsection, “equipment regulated by the department of health” shall have the meaning ascribed to the term in section 13-32-310.
No city department shall assess any fee in addition to the permit fee(s) required under this chapter, if the fee being assessed by such city department has already been calculated into the permit fee(s) required under this chapter.
