BDS Fee Change Update

Plans Examiner Newsletter

Prior to the spread of COVID-19, BDS had intended to propose fee changes taking effect July 1, 2020. However, due to COVID-19 and its impact on the local economy, BDS has decided not to pursue fee changes at this time. These changes will be delayed until further notice, once economic conditions have stabilized.

Raising fees at this time would put undue burden on our customers at a time when many individuals and businesses are struggling. BDS does not want to create additional financial burden at a time of such economic uncertainty.

Please see the website for current fee schedule information for BDS and our interagency partners, and for future updates to the fee schedules.
