The CIty has reviewed it's building permit, fire permit and technology fee. The update sought to 1) update methodology for calculation of building permit fees from a square footage basis to a more traditional valuation basis, 2) Update cost of service calculations used to establish the fees for both building and fire permits, and 3) update the technology fee to incorporate new costs from City's purchase and current implementation of a permit tracking software.
The City conducted two outreach meetings with local contractor, developers and builders on September 14, and September 20, 2023. A copy of this presentation can be found here. In addition, the fee justification study are included here. Building Permit Fee Update/Justification and Fire Permit Fee Justification/Update are provided.
The item was reviewed by the City Council on November 7, 2023 and approved. Notice of this meeting is provided here as is the adopted Resolution (City Council Resolution No 23-214). The updated Fire Department Construction and Operational fees, along with the Technology Fee update will become effective 60 days after it's adoption, or January 8, 2024. The updated Building Permit Fees were approved, but the implementation has been deferred to coincide with the "go live" date of the new permit tracking software the city is currently implementing (currently anticipated no earlier than mid September 2024). The City would provide notice of the actual date on the City web site, posting at City Hall public counter and at a public meeting before the council, atleast 15 days before the actual effective date. Fee will be assessed based on the application date of a complete building permit submittal, therefore any permit application submitted prior to the go live date will be assessed under the current fee schedule and any permit application submitted on or after the go live date, will be assessed under the new fee schedule.
The Staff report for the City Council hearing, along with associated information, were made available by the Friday, Nov 3, 2023. Those can be viewed at https://www.cityofdixon.us/MeetingAgendasMinutesVideos and then clicking on the agenda link for the Nov 7 City Council meeting.

Larry was selected after a competitive recruitment process and comes to the City with over 8 years of experience in the building field, mostly with the City of Davis. Dixon has not had a Chief Building Official for over 7 years, so Larry will be taking on this new position to help reshape and structure the building department operations and help Dixon move us forward as the city grows.
