HIGHLAND, AR (KAIT) - Building fees will increase in the city of Highland.

The council passed a new ordinance this month that revised building permit fees and penalties.

The fees include $0.10 per every square foot on newly constructed buildings or additions. These fees apply to both residential and commercial property.

The ordinance states all fees must be paid before a building permit is issued and any work done without a permit can result in double fees.
