(Added by Ord. No. 184,054, Eff. 3/6/16.)
For all Bureau of Engineering permits and services identified in this Code for which a fee is charged, and which require Bureau staff time for plan checking, field investigation, project evaluation, or other work or effort in addition to that which is ordinarily required for the permit or service for which the fee is charged, the following fees shall apply:
(a) For Bureau of Engineering services that require 16 or fewer additional hours of Bureau staff time, a Special Engineering Fee of $149 per hour shall be charged for each hour of additional service, up to a maximum of 16 hours total; and
(b) For Bureau of Engineering services that require more than 16 additional hours of Bureau staff time, the Bureau will charge and collect the actual cost of its services pursuant to the provisions of Section 61.15, unless a provision of this Code provides for a different fee amount.
The provisions of this section shall not apply to any Bureau of Engineering fee that requires payment of actual Bureau costs rather than a fixed pre-determined fee amount.
