Development fee increases coming Sept. 1 at Public Works

Beginning Sept. 1, Chelan County Public Works will increase development fees that the department collects on permit applications.

Citizens will see increases in permit fees that are related to new driveways or approaches to county roads, new addresses, private road namings, work in the right-of-way requests and event applications. The new fees also will include Public Works’ review for land use permits and road construction.

The increases, which were approved by the Board of County Commissioners in July following a public hearing, are based off of the average time spent to process and review the permit applications, said Eric Pierson, Chelan County Public Works director and county engineer.

“The increases will cover about 75 percent of our costs associated with the applications, which include not only reviewing the applications but also field inspections, in some cases,” Pierson said. “Unfortunately, at this time, we’re recovering only about 30 percent of our costs. The last time we adjusted fees was in 2014.”

Additional fee categories that were created with the increase in fees were missed in the 2014 adjustments, or are unique and needed to be separated out, Pierson added.

The new fee schedule is available online. If you have questions about the fee schedule, contact Andrew Brunner, Development Review manager for Chelan County Public Works, at andrew.brunner@co.chelan.wa.us.
