Background Discussion
The number of building permits issued in Manatee County has continuously increased each year since 2010 as our market continues to recover.  In 2012 there was a 6% reduction in permit fees then again, in 2013, over 50 permit and inspection fees were reduced by 10%. The Building and Development Services Department is again requesting a reduction in over 50 types of building fees, with most of them being reduced in the 6%-20% range.  One fee will be increasing, Driveway Permits, from $130 to $169, which is a shared revenue fee between the Building and Development Services and the Public Works Departments. 

The updated Building Fee Schedule is based on a fee study and reflects the recommendation of the Department.  A summary of fees referenced in the Building Fee Schedule are as follows:
  • R-16-101 - Building Permit, Inspection, Miscellaneous, and Charges
  • R-16-107 - Contractor Licensing, Renewal, Examination, and Administrative Fees and Charges for Unincorporated Manatee County
  • R-16-108 - Floodplain Fees and Charges.
The Building and Development Services Department request that the updated fees be approved with an effective date of August 1, 2016.
