Title: 14 - Buildings and Constructions

Chapter: 05 - Grading Excavating and Filling

Section: 80 - Fees and bonds

A.  For excavation and fill on the same site, the fee shall be based on the volume of the excavation or fill, whichever is greater. Before accepting a set of plans and specifications for checking, the building official shall collect a plan checking fee. Separate permits and fees shall apply to retaining walls or major drainage structures as indicated elsewhere in this code. There shall be no separate charge for standard terrace drains and similar facilities. The amount of the plan checking fee for grading plans shall be as set forth in the current fee schedule as adopted by resolution of the board of supervisors.

The plan checking fee for a grading permit authorizing additional work to that under a valid permit shall be tile difference between such fee paid for the original permit and tile fee shown for the entire project.

B.  A fee for each grading permit shall be paid to the building official set forth in the current fee schedule as adopted by resolution of tile board of supervisors.

C.  The building official or county engineer may require bonds in such form and amounts as may be deemed necessary to assure that tile work, if not completed in accordance with tile approved plans and specifications, will be corrected to eliminate hazardous conditions.

In lieu of a surety bond tile applicant may file a cash bond or instrument of credit with tile building official in an amount equal to that which would be required in the surety bond.
