Fees for permits issued are eligible for partial refund only under the following circumstances:
No work shall have taken place associated with the permit
Refunds may only be requested by and paid to the party that paid the fee
The request for a refund must be in writing or email and must provide cause as to why the permit is no longer required
Request must be made within 90 days of the date the permit was issued
Any decreased cost of construction resulting from the alteration of construction plans will not result in the refund of any amount of the paid permit fee
A $65 application fee will be deducted from all permit refunds.
In addition to the $65 application fee, permits that require plan review and/or inter-office review (such as new structures, additions, alterations, decks, etc.) a 20% review fee will be deducted from the refund if the review has begun. A full refund may be granted for any fee that was erroneously paid
