Town realigns building fees to cover costs

Grafton - Robert S. Berger, inspector of buildings and zoning enforcement officer, appeared before the Grafton Board of Selectmen at its July 7 meeting. He told the board that current fees for building permits, last set in 2004, were not covering the expenses of required building and land inspections. He indicated that for fiscal year 2016, current building permit fees would be short approximately $38,000 in covering the actual expenses. Noting that fees are based upon the square footage of the proposed structure or room, he advocated three changes: (1) a change to $5 fee per $1,000 building/renovation cost, with a $50 minimum; (2) a change to fire systems protection inspections to $200 for up to a two-hour inspection; and (3) a buildable lot/zoning inspection fee of $200 for up to four hours.
