Fee Schedule

Permit fees, plan review fees and refundable bonds may be associated with your project.  Village staff will inform you of any required fees when you apply for your permit.  Please remember to obtain a building permit before starting any work.  If you start work without a building permit, you are subject to a permit penalty and Village personnel have no other alternative than to stop work on your project.

Round value up to nearest $5.00.  Examples below based on $114,000 value.

Permit Fee

$12 per thousand of value
(or 1.2% of value)

Example based on $114,000:
$12 x 114 = $1,368
(or .012 x $114,000 = $1,368)

Minimum Fee for residential work is $50
Minimum Fee for Commercial work is $100

Refundable Bond

No bond is needed for work under $5000

$10 per thousand up to $50,000,  $5 per additional thousand.
(or 1% up to $50,000, then .5% per additional thousand)

Example based on $114,000:
First $50,000 of value: $10 x 50 = $500
Remainder of value: $114,000 - $50,000 = $64,000, $5 x 64 = $320
$500 + $320 = $820 refundable bond

(or .01 x $50,000 = $500, plus .005 x $64,000 = $320
$500 + $320 = $820)
