Fees -- Expiration -- Validity

(1) Construction Permit Fee. The construction permit fee shall be as set forth in sections (5) and (6) of this rule or as established by the municipality administering the manufactured dwelling or mobile home park program and shall be paid to the authority having jurisdiction prior to beginning construction. Valuation of construction cost is to be determined by the authority having jurisdiction.

NOTE: The construction permit does not include building permits, manufactured dwelling installation permits, electrical permits, or plumbing permits.

(2) Return of Plans. The authority having jurisdiction should, within 30 working days from the date of submission of a complete set of plans, approve or return the plans with noted modifications to the applicant.

(3) Plans Review Fee. The plan review fee shall be 65 percent of the permit fee and shall be paid to the authority having jurisdiction at the time of submitting plans and specifications for review.

(4) Expiration and Validity of Plans and Permits:

(a) Expiration of plan approval shall be one year after the date of approval if no construction permit is issued. The authority having jurisdiction may extend the time for action by the applicant for a period not exceeding 180 days upon written request by the applicant showing that circumstances beyond the control of the applicant have prevented action from being taken. In order to renew action on an application after expiration, the applicant shall resubmit plans and pay a new review fee;

(b) Expiration of Construction Permits. Construction permits issued by the authority having jurisdiction under the provisions of these rules shall expire if the construction authorized by such permit is not commenced within 180 days from the date of such permit, or if the construction authorized by such permit is suspended for a period of 180 days, or abandoned at any time after the work is commenced. Before such construction can be recommenced, a new permit shall be first obtained to do so and the fee therefore shall be one-half the amount required for a new permit for such work, provided no changes have been made or will be made in the original plans and specifications for such permitted work and provided, further, that the duration of the suspension of work or abandonment has not exceeded one year;

(c) Validity. The issuance or granting of a permit or approval of plans and specifications shall not be construed to be a permit for, or an approval of, any violation of any of the provisions of these rules. The issuance of a permit based upon plans and specifications shall not prevent the issuing agency from thereafter requiring the correction of errors in said plans or construction;

(d) Suspension or Revocation. The authority having jurisdiction may, in writing, suspend or revoke a permit issued under provisions of these administrative rules whenever the permit is issued in error or on the basis of incorrect information supplied, or in violation of any provisions of these administrative rules.

(5) Area Development Fee. The area development fee shall be determined from Table 1 using the valuation for all facilities for which the permit is issued. The fees in Table 1 shall be based on valuation Table 2 or be determined by the applicant with documentation acceptable to the authority having jurisdiction. Permit fees shall be paid to the authority having jurisdiction before any work begins.

NOTE: The Area Development Permit does not include permits or related fees for buildings, manufactured dwelling installations, accessory buildings or structures, mechanical, plumbing or electrical systems; boilers, elevators, or permits required by other agencies.

(6) Other Inspection Fees:

(a) Inspections outside of normal business hours (Minimum charge -- two hours), $50/hr;

(b) Reinspection fee, $50/ea;

(c) Inspections for which no fee is specifically indicated (Minimum charge -- one-half hour), $50/hr;

(d) Additional plan review required by changes, additions or revisions to approved plans (Minimum charge -- one-half hour), $50/hr;

(e) Consultation Fee (Minimum charge -- one hour) $30/hr;

(f) A special inspection is required and a special inspection fee shall be paid before a permit may be issued for work started without a permit. The special inspection fee shall be equal to and in addition to the amount of the permit fee required by these rules;

(g) In addition to the called-for inspections, the authority having jurisdiction may make or require additional inspections to ensure compliance with the provisions or the code and laws;

(h) A reinspection fee may be assessed for each inspection or reinspection when the work for which an inspection is called is not completed or when required corrections are not made. [Tables not included. See ED. NOTE.]
