  • Subsection 553.80(7), Florida Statutes, authorizes the governing bodies of local governments to provide a schedule of reasonable fees for the enforcement of the provisions of Chapter 553, Part IV, Florida Statutes, the Florida Building Code; and
  • Subsection 553.80(7), Florida Statutes, provides that such fees shall be used solely for carrying out the local government's responsibilities in enforcing the Florida Building Code; and
  • Subsection 553.80(7), Florida Statutes, specifies the costs which may be funded with fees adopted for enforcing the Florida Building Code; and
  • Section 109.1 of the 2010 Florida Building Code prohibits the issuance of a permit until fees authorized under Section 553.80, Florida Statutes, have been paid; and
