VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - Fuel costs tied to field inspections are a primary reason Warren County's building permit fees might be going up.
Emergency Management Director John Elfer says the current $5 fee for developments valued at more than $500 and a $10 charge for buildings in floodplains net the permitting side of his department about $2,000 annually.
The Vicksburg Post reports (http://bit.ly/1fYSni7 ) Elfer has pushed county supervisors for a flat $25 fee for all residential and commercial sheds, gazebos, storage structures and other buildings.
