15.34.010 Amendments to Chapter 1, Section 103.2.9, Supplemental enforcement.

Section 103.2.9 of the International Code Council Performance Code, 2003 Edition, is amended by the addition of Subsections through as follows: Payment of fees.  A permit shall not be valid until the fees prescribed by law have been paid, nor shall an amendment to a permit be released until the additional fee, if any, has been paid. Schedule of permit fees.  On buildings, structures, electrical, gas, mechanical, and plumbing systems or alterations requiring a permit, a fee for each permit shall be paid as required, in accordance with the schedule as established by the applicable governing authority.  The fee for each permit shall be as set forth in Amended Table 1-A as established in Wapato Municipal Code Section 15.40.020. Plan Review Fees.  When submittal documents are required to be submitted by Section 106, a plan review fee in addition to the permit fee shall be paid at the time of submitting submittal documents for plan review.  Said plan review fee shall be SIXTY-FIVE (65) PERCENT of the building permit fee as shown in Amended Table 1-A.  The plan review fees specified in this subsection are separate fees from the permit fees specified in Section 108.2 and are in addition to the permit fees.  When submittal documents are incomplete or changed so as to require additional plan review, or when the project involves deferred submittal items as defined in Section, an additional plan review fee shall be charged at the rate shown in Amended Table 1-A. Building permit valuations.  The applicant for a permit shall provide an estimated permit value at time of application.  Permit valuations shall include total value of work, including materials and labor, for which the permit is being issued, such as electrical, gas, mechanical, plumbing equipment and permanent systems.  If, in the opinion of the building official, the valuation is underestimated on the application, the permit shall be denied, unless the applicant can show detailed estimates to meet the approval of the building official.  The determination of value or valuation under any of the provisions of this code shall be made by the Building Official by reference to the “building valuation data” as printed in the “Building Safety” magazine.  The value to be used in computing the building permit and building plan review fee shall be the total value of all construction work for which the permit is issued, as well as all finish work, painting, roofing, electrical, plumbing, heating, air-conditioning, elevators, fire extinguishing systems and any other permanent equipment.  Final building permit valuation shall be set by the building official. Work Commencing Before Permit Issuance.  Any person who commences any work on a building, structure, electrical, gas, mechanical or plumbing system before obtaining the necessary permits shall be subject to a fee established by the building official that shall be in addition to the required permit fees.  An investigation fee, in addition to the permit fee, shall be collected whether or not a permit is then or subsequently issued.  The investigation fee shall be equal to the amount of the permit fee required by this code.  The minimum investigation fee shall be the same as the minimum fee set forth in Amended Table 1-A.  The payment of such investigation fee shall not exempt any person from compliance with all other provisions of this code nor from any penalty prescribed by law. Related fees.  The payment of the fee for the construction, alteration, removal or demolition for work done in connection to or concurrently with the work authorized by a building permit shall not relieve the applicant or holder of the permit from the payment of other fees that are prescribed by law. Refunds.  The building official is authorized to establish a refund policy.
