A. 
Administrative Fees. In the administration of the provisions of this Chapter, the Building Department shall collect all fees for all permits issued in relation to water, sewer, excavation and building projects.
1. 
The administrative fees for building permits shall be collected at the time of the filing of a petition or an application and shall be non-refundable. Administrative fees for residential-related permits shall be twenty-five dollars ($25.00), and for commercial and/or industrial-related permits the fee shall be seventy-five dollars ($75.00).
B. 
Cost Of Building Permit. The fee for a building permit for buildings and structures of all use groups and types of construction as classified and defined in this Chapter of the Building Code shall be according to one (1) of the rate schedules listed below. The fee for all building permits shall be based on the gross square footage and/or the total construction cost.
1. 
Residential. The following formula will be used to determine the permit fee for new residential buildings within the City of Byrnes Mill. Using the total cost of the project and applying the multiplier of 0.0035 determines the permit fee. If the project has a contract bid that has been accepted, that will be the total cost. If no contract, a total cost will be supplied by the permit applicant and this will be compared to the total cost determined by using the IBC formula for determining total construction cost. If the two (2) figures are close, the one (1) provided by the applicant will be used. If the figures are some distance apart, the Building Department will determine whether to average the two (2) or use the IBC calculated value.
2. 
IBC formula.
a. 
This will be used to determine the permit fee for new commercial and industrial buildings within the City of Byrnes Mill. Using the total cost of construction and applying the multiplier of 0.005, the permit fee is determined. If the project has a contract bid that has been accepted, that will be the total cost. If there is no contract, the permit applicant will supply a total cost, and this will be compared to the total cost determined by using the IBC formula for determining total construction cost. If the two (2) figures are close, the one (1) provided by the applicant will be used. If the figures are some distance apart, the Building Department will determine whether to average the two (2) or to use the IBC calculated value.
b. 
The IBC formula for determining construction value is:
(Gross Area x Gross Area Multiplier x Type of Construction Factor).
c. 
In addition, any additional electrical, plumbing, mechanical and/or footing/foundation inspection anticipated above the normal amount can be added to the permit fee. (See flat rate schedule for such inspections.)

Each lift shall be compacted to ninety-five percent (95%) of standard proctor density. An optional method of backfilling of the excavation may be accomplished by the use of concrete flowable fill.
