The fee for a building permit and inspections of residential construction or new structures, alterations and additions on one- or two-family residential structures and all other miscellaneous residential construction shall be determined by applying the table of fee rates set forth below to the total estimated cost of construction as determined in Section 500.020 of this Article. Permit processing, plan review and inspection charges are included in the fee rate. However, the minimum permit fee shall be ninety-six dollars ($96.00) where no plan review is required. A building permit and inspection fee for residential construction, with a total estimated cost of construction in excess of six hundred and eighty thousand dollars ($680,000.00) shall be computed at the rate of three dollars and sixty cents ($3.60) per thousand dollars of the total estimated cost of construction.

Editor's Note: Ord. No. 8357 repealed former Chapter 500, Building Regulations, containing Sections 500.010 through 500.050 and adopted the regulations set out herein in their place.
[Ord. No. 8357, 11-27-2017]
A. 
The Code Official is authorized to estimate the total cost of construction of a structure, building or project, by multiplying the total floor area of the structure in square feet by an appropriate square foot cost rate as published by the International Code Council. Structures or projects for which it is impractical to estimate the total construction cost by said square foot cost method shall be estimated by applying current, commonly accepted unit cost figures to the various components in a commonly accepted manner. In lieu of determining the total cost of construction as outlined above, the Code Official may accept a bona fide contract or any affidavit of the owner of the building structure or project, in which the total cost of construction, including site improvements related to the permit, is verified by applicant and owner.
B. 
The method to be used for calculating the estimated value for the construction of any building for the purpose of a building permit fee calculation shall be by one (1) of the following methods in which the highest figure shall be used:
1. 
The construction cost may be taken as that cost which was submitted on the permit application.
2. 
The construction cost and permit fee may be calculated using the most recent building valuation data report as published by the International Code Council (ICC). This cost shall be determined by using one hundred percent (100%) of the square footage cost given in the table. The calculation shall be required in writing provided by applicant.
[Ord. No. 8357, 11-27-2017]

Such work shall be performed in a neat and workmanlike manner.
2. 
All signs and signposts, other than real estate signs, relating to such premises shall be removed.
