Permitting Fees Are On Their Way Down!!!

Posted on 10/16/2012 1:02 pm by mckenzie homes

"With building activity up and internal effeciencies on the rise, the cost of doing business with Manatee County is going down. Manatee County commissioners unanimously lowered county permitting fees 6 percent."*


"The lower fees went into effect on October 1, 2012. The lower fees were originally presented in the County Administrator's proposed budget in May and are the result of increased efficiencies in the Building and Development Services Department and a rebounding construction industry throughout Manatee County."*


The 6 percent decrease is not taken over the total cost of a single family residence permit, however. Fees for water, sewer, roads, parks, and fire departments remain unchanged. The drop is only effective on the actual square footage charge of the permit.
