Permit Fees  - JCC Ordinance 81A-13 - Adopted May 9, 2006

An ordinance to amend and reordain Chapter 4, Building Regulations, of the Code of the County of James City, Virginia, by amending Article I, Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code, Division 2, Permit and Inspection Fees, Section 4-8, Generally; Section 4-9, Refunds; and Section 4-10, Exemptions.

Be it Ordained by the Board of Supervisors of the County of James City, Virginia, that Chapter 4, Building Regulations, is hereby amended and reordained by amending Section 4-8, Generally; Section 4-9, Refunds; and Section 4-10, Exemptions.

Permit and inspection fees are established in accordance with the provisions of the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code.

 

Refunds

No fee paid for any permit covered under Section 4-8 of the Code shall be refunded unless the permit application is denied and a permit is not issued or the permit is issued in error. If a permit is revoked, abandoned or the project for which the permit is obtained is discontinued, a portion of the permit fee may be refunded after deducting $25, plus the addition of a two percent State levy, for administrative costs plus $15, plus the addition of a two percent State levy, for each normal inspection that has been made. No permit fee, the value of which is $25 or less, will be refunded.

Exemptions

Where the owner of any premises is the United States of America, the commonwealth, the county or instrumentalities thereof, the payment of any permit fee established in Section 4-8 of the Code is hereby waived. When the Housing and Community Development Administrator certifies that the work for which application has been made is funded through his office or a related program and requests that fees be waived, then the request shall be granted
