Thurston County plans huge permit fee increase
(Olympia, Washington) Thurston County is having a public hearing tonight on the topic of permit fees for land development. The regulations are so burdensome and complex that the county needs to raise fees by a huge amount. Not only do they cost a lot of money but the county employees give out incorrect information about half the time. So they are to complex for them to administer as well. So these are a burden on the county and they are a burden on the people who just need a place to live.
Attend the Public hearing!
The public hearing is at 6 p.m. tonight in Room 280, Building 1, of the courthouse, 2000 Lakeridge Drive S.W., Olympia.
Fee increases are either doubling, tripling or quadrupling depending on which fee you look at, check out the full document here
Update: I attended the hearing and spoke out against these outrageous fee increases. I was not surprised that every other person that attended also spoke out against them as well. What do you bet that the county commissioners will do it anyway?
