Permits and Inspections

Permit and Inspection Fees

Section 113.2 “Schedule of Permit Fees” of the 2019 Fire Code states “the Fire Chief shall charge and receive such fees and charges for services and permits for cost recovery of fire and life safety activities.” Additionally, Section 13916 of the Health and Safety Code permits a district to charge a fee to cover the cost of any service of which the district provides or the cost of enforcing any regulation for which the fee is charged, provided that no fee exceeds the cost reasonably borne by the district in providing the service.

The District has made a determination that the costs of providing Fire Prevention Services, as set forth in the "Fire and Life Safety Recovery Schedule" represent the costs reasonably borne by the District in providing the identified fire protection services or enforcing the regulation for which the fee is charged. This fee schedule was adopted by Ordinance 2020-01 at a regular meeting of the Board on March 31, 2020 and will be in effect beginning May 1, 2020.
