Once the valuation is determined, the following table is used to calculate permit fees:
         (a)   Twenty-eight dollars and seventy-five cents ($28.75) fee for any valuation of a structure that is $3,000.00 or less.
         (b)   Twenty-eight dollars and seventy-five cents ($28.75) fee for the first $3,000.00 plus $5.75 for each additional thousand or fraction thereof, to and including $50,000.00, for any valuation of a structure that is from $3,000.01 to $50,000.00.

      (3)   Plan checking fees. When the valuation of the proposed construction is for a commercial use and exceeds $1,000.00, and a plan is required to be submitted by the Code of Ordinances, a plan checking fee shall be paid to the Inspection Department at the time of submitting plans and specifications for checking. Residential plan checking fees apply to single-family dwellings with a valuation of $500,000.00 or more. Said plan checking fee shall be equal to one-half of the building permit as set forth in the code.
      (4)   Miscellaneous commercial permits. Shell commercial structures will receive a final building permit upon approval of completion of the shell building and associated systems. Tenant improvement permits and interior remodeling permits will be issued based on the permit and plan checking fee schedule.
      (5)   Miscellaneous residential and agricultural zoned accessory building permits. Permit fees for sheds, pole barns, unattached garages and other like structures will be calculated using the following guidelines: for a structure without any utilities (plumbing, electrical or HVAC) consisting of pole type, wood or steel frame construction without a concrete floor, the permit fee shall be calculated at 25% of the square foot cost using the most current ICC building valuation data for utility group and VB construction type, not including the suggested 20% deduction for shell only buildings. Permit fees for structures with a concrete floor and wood or steel frame construction with no utilities shall be calculated at 35% of the ICC valuation using the same group and construction type. Permit fees for buildings with a concrete floor and wood or steel frame that include any utilities, (plumbing, electrical, HVAC) will be calculated at 45% of the ICC valuation.
      (6)   Additions to commercial or residential buildings. Fees for additions to commercial and residential buildings will be regarded as new construction for fee purposes.
