Town Board Approves New Bldg. Permit Fees

Some building permit fees will increase and others will remain the same following action by the Greeneville Board of Mayor and Aldermen on Friday.

Aldermen voted unanimously in favor of a resolution setting the building permit and other fees, as presented by Greeneville Building Official Jeff Woods.

Woods explained the changes to the board prior to the vote.

Building permits for structures valued at $1,000 or less were originally $25, but will now increase to $30.

Above $1,000, the fee increases from $25 to $35 plus $5 for each additional thousand up to and including $50,000.

Permits for structures $50,001 up to $100,000 will be $270 for the first $50,000 and $4 for each additional thousand, which is a $10 increase from the previous fee of $260.

Buildings valued between $100,001 and $500,000 will increase from $460 to $470 for the first $100,000 plus $3 for each additional thousand.

Building permits for structures valued $500,001 and up will increase from $1,660 to $1,670 for the first $500,000, plus $2 for each additional thousand.

Plumbing permit fees will increase from $20 to $25.

Residential demolition fees will increase from $50 to $100.

Certificate of Occupancy fees will increase from $25 to $50.

Greeneville Fire Department fees, such as increases in operational permit fees, testing fees and reinspection fees, will increase from $25 to $30.

Other permit fees, Woods said, will remain the same.

Another change in the resolution approved by the board Friday will set a flat fee of $25 for portable storage buildings.

In the past, Woods said, permits for those structures were based on the total cost of the building. The flat $25 fee, he added, would result in a lower fee than the value-based fee for most individuals.

A new gas permit fee was added. Woods said his department will now be doing inspections of interior gas lines. Exterior gas lines, he said, will continue to be inspected by the gas utility companies that install them.

The gas permit fee will be $25 for the first $1,000 of value plus $5 per fixture or appliance.

The resolution setting the new fees passed unanimously with little discussion.
