City Council to vote on new building, planning fees at tomorrow's meeting

Here are the fee schedules the City Council will be considering at tomorrow night's meeting after receiving a positive advisory opinion from the city Planning Board last week.
City of Saratoga Springs Building Department Fees 2011

City of Saratoga Springs Office of Planning and Economic Developmet Fees 2011

It is unclear whether a vote on this would confirm the council proposal to be able to amend the fees by resolution, without review from either the city or county planning boards.

There are at least $300 in new fees here; including $100 for a demolition permit and $50 for a roofing permit. What do you think of these new fees?

In Saratoga what's another 200 to300 dollars for permits when maintaining your property.

The fees were based on a ten city study all in New York State. Some have been at this level for some time. Maybe you caught a break for eight years. Quite honestly Saratoga Springs have been well below average with fees, city taxes and above average on services. School taxes are the major issue. Compare the average home with schulevillr and you might be shocked and they don'tsential services provided by Saratoga Springs.
