STAFFORD – At a recent township meeting, the council introduced an ordinance that would establish four levels of new permit fees under the uniform fire code. These fees have not been changed or updated since 2004, according to the ordinance.
Stafford is following suit with the state, which established new rates “to keep pace with the increased cost of fire prevention services.”
The ordinance amends the township fees to now reflect that of the state:
- Type 1: $54
- Type 2: $214
- Type 3: $427
- Type 4: $641
This ordinance will be up for a second reading and final passage at the July 17 meeting.
