The village shall retain the right to use all legal and equitable remedies available to it for collection of such deficiency.
R105.6.1 Suspended Permits. Permits may be suspended for no more than 60 days. Within that 60 day period, the cause or reason for suspension shall be corrected to meet the requirements of this code, or the building official shall revoke the permit. If the cause or reason for the suspension is corrected, the building official shall reinstate the permit with the expiration timeframe starting on the date of reinstatement. There shall be an administrative fee of 50% of the total permit fee(s) for each reinstatement granted.
Exception: The administrative fee shall be waived if the suspension was due to no fault of the applicant, owner, or their agent(s).
R105.6.2 Revoked Or Expired Permits. Any permit which has been revoked or expired shall become permanently invalid, any and all fees and/or restoration/completion bond(s) with the village of Oak Brook for this project shall be forfeit.

The village shall retain the right to use all legal and equitable remedies available to it for collection of such deficiency.
Exception: Permit fees and restoration/completion bond(s) for permits revoked due to no fault of the applicant, owner, or fee remitter may be refunded. This provision shall not be construed to allow refund of a bond while there are outstanding fees, charges or conditions needing to be brought into compliance. This provision shall not be construed to allow for the refund of application fees, plan review fees, inspection fees, engineering fees, or other expenses incurred by the village of Oak Brook.
R105.7 Placement Of Permit. The building permit or copy shall be kept on the site of the work until the completion of the project. The building permit or copy shall be prominently displayed in a location that is accessible to the public.

Once a permit has been revoked or expired, the responsible party shall immediately commence a good faith effort to obtain the required permits, including the submittal of construction plans, along with all fees and bonds within fifteen days (15 days) of expiration or revocation. If the submittals are not received within that fifteen (15) day period, an additional permit fee of one hundred dollars ($100.00) per day shall be paid by the permittee for every day thereafter until the required submittals are received. The requirement of permit(s) for completion and/or certificate of occupancy shall not be utilized to preclude or be construed as a defense against other legal remedies available to satisfy the intent of this code.
R105.10 Permit Holder Qualifications. For new construction as defined and regulated by this code, the owner, owner's employee, or contractor serving as the owner's representative shall demonstrate basic residential code knowledge by passing the test for: national standard general building contractor (A), national standard building contractor (B), or national standard residential contractor (C) - as administered by the International Code Council - or approved and tested equivalent, for the issuance and duration of the permit. Failure to retain at least one required qualified person, in a supervisory role, on a project shall be cause for immediate suspension of the permit pursuant to section R105.6.1 of this code. Licensure as a design professional shall not be considered equivalent.
Exception: For detached single-family dwellings, the building official is authorized to waive the qualification requirement for a project with a total or remaining job cost less than $100,000, or qualifies for a temporary certificate of occupancy. This waiver may be revoked for cause where the building official finds multiple and/or repeated violations of the village of Oak Brook code in the project.
R106.1 Submittal Documents. Submittal documents consisting of construction documents and other data shall be submitted in two or more sets with each application for a permit. The construction documents shall be prepared by a registered design professional. Where special conditions exist, the building official is authorized to require additional construction documents to be prepared by a registered design professional.
Exceptions: The building official is authorized to waive the submission of construction documents and other data not required to be prepared by a registered design professional if it is found that the nature of the work applied for is such that reviewing of construction documents is not necessary to obtain compliance with this code.
