RESOLUTION #2018- ni 4 <br /> A RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS <br /> OF INDIAN RIVER COUNTY AMENDING THE SCHEDULE FOR <br /> PAYMENT OF FEES FOR PLAN REVIEW FOR COMMERCIAL, <br /> INSTITUTIONAL AND MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL <br /> DEVELOPMENTS AND PROVIDING AN EFFECTIVE DATE. <br /> WHEREAS, the Indian River County Emergency Services District ("District") is <br /> responsible for inspecting all property and investigating for fire hazards, including the <br /> enforcement of a fire prevention code; and <br /> WHEREAS, pursuant to the above referenced authority, the District provides to the <br /> public certain plan review, inspection and code enforcement services through its Fire <br /> Marshal; and <br /> WHEREAS, the Board of County Commissioners ("Board") adopted Resolution <br /> 2004-071 which established reasonable fees for said services, pursuant to the provisions of <br /> Sections 208.10-14 of Ordinance No. 2004-021; and <br /> WHEREAS, by Resolution 2009-029, the Board amended Resolution 2004-071 as it <br /> pertained to fees charged to organizers of Special Events for plan review, inspection <br /> services and penalties for code enforcement; and <br /> WHEREAS, by Resolution 2017-070, the Board created the Development Review <br /> and Permit Process Advisory Committee ("Committee") that is charged with the duty of <br /> identifying issues and adopting recommendations for improving the development review <br /> and permit process; and <br /> WHEREAS, the Committee identified an issue with the timing of the payment of fees <br /> for construction plan review of Commercial, Institutional and Multi-family Residential <br /> developments. The current fee schedule calls for the entire plan review fee to be paid at <br /> the time of application. This fee is intended to cover the cost of on-site inspections. The <br /> Committee reasoned that if an applicant submitted plans but then decide not to move <br /> forward with the project, the applicant would have paid fees covering inspections that would <br /> never be conducted. <br /> WHEREAS, the Committee has recommended that Resolution 2004-071 be <br /> amended to provide for the payment of any construction plan review fee calculated to be in <br /> excess of$5,000.00 for Commercial, Institutional and Multi-family Residential developments <br /> to be paid 25% at the time of building permit application and 75% prior to or at the time of <br /> building permit issuance. <br /> NOW, THEREFORE, be it resolved by the Board of County Commissioners of Indian <br /> River County as follows: <br /> The Board hereby adopts the following amendment to Attachment "A", Indian River County <br /> 1 <br />
