The fees are all different in Highland, depending upon what was paid at development stage. These fees are fixed for new single family residential permits and are as follows:
Generally, with a single family dwelling, an engineer may have to size the beams and some of the connections. Generally for basement construction projects, you can draw your own plans. For anything else we may require that a licensed engineer review these plans and stamp them prior to submission to ensure structural integrity. All plans must be drawn to scale and should be no smaller than ¼" = 1'. Plans must include all construction details, including but not limited to electrical layout, window size and location, doors, smoke detectors, framing detail, beam size, engineering, etc.
The standard inspections are, but are not limited to, footings, foundations, temporary power, underground plumbing, four-way (electrical, plumbing, mechanical, and framing), permanent power, stucco, weather barrier, flashing, sheetrock, shower pan, and final inspection. However, depending upon the complexity of your construction there may be other inspections required. Check with anyone from the Building Department at (801) 772-4516 if you have questions concerning what inspections you need.

Please be aware of the following when submitting requests: * Even if you find it in another library catalog, all our requests are managed by the State Library Division and they randomly ask libraries for the item (they only ask libraries for it if they know if they own it). * Libraries are often reluctant to loan new or popular items. They prefer to make them available for their own patrons first. Most videos and audio items are easily damaged in the mail so most libraries will be reluctant to loan those types of items as well. * Items may take a few days to several weeks to get it here. We not only have control over that, we don't know where they are or coming from!
