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 ordinance includes five sections regarding building permits.
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.
