EMD will be holding public workshops starting in November 2019 to provide you with more information about the proposed fee schedule for EMD permitting and services. EMD did not increase fees this fiscal year (2019-20) which makes this the 9th straight year fees have remained unchanged. EMD contracted an independent third party to perform a fee study to determine the correct fees that would fully cost recover for the required inspections and services. EMD is scheduled to adopt this fee schedule starting fiscal year 2020-2021.
The public workshops are designed to give you more information about the proposed fees, answer your questions and provide a forum to give feedback about how the fees many impact you.
EMD understands the proposed fee increases will likely have an effect on businesses and residents. To help reduce those effects, EMD plans on phasing most of the fee increases over the next three to five years.
If you have any questions or need additional information, contact EMD at EMD-FeeOutreach@Saccounty.net or (916) 875-8550.
It is encouraged that you attend one of the workshops to inquire about how the proposed permit fees may affect you and to understand the various services provided and available from EMD.
