§ 110.034  ONE-TIME PERMITS ISSUED BY FIRE DEPARTMENT.
   (a)   One-time permits shall be issued by the fire department for installations and special activities as defined by the fire code. Permit fees shall provide for initial plan review, rough-in, final inspection, and one reinspection. Plan review and inspection fee increases shall be applicable as follows.
      (1)   Plan review-increased fees. Where a permit-required item fails initial plan review, a second plan review will not require increased fees. Increased fees shall apply for reviews necessary beyond a second plan review. A minimum plan check review fee of $125, or 50 percent of the original permit fee, whichever is greater, shall be assessed and paid prior to issuance of a permit. Plan review fee increases shall apply for expedited review requests. Expedited plan check review fees shall be charged at a rate equal to 50 percent of the calculated permit fees.
      (2)   Inspection-increased fees. Where a permitted item fails initial and reinspection, a subsequent reinspection fee of $150 for each additional inspection shall be assessed and paid prior to the reinspection occurring. After-hours inspection fees shall be based upon current inspector overtime rates with a two-hour minimum.
