A. Every permit issued shall expire two years from the date of issuance. The building official may approve a request for an extended expiration date where a construction schedule is provided by the applicant and approved prior to permit issuance.
B. Every permit which has been expired for less than 90 days may be renewed for a period of one year for an additional fee that is based on the valuation of the work remaining, as long as any changes to the design have been reviewed and approved by the building official prior to the original expiration date. For permits that have been expired for longer than 90 days, a new permit must be obtained and full new fees paid. No permit shall be renewed more than once.
C. Mechanical and plumbing permits shall expire at the same time as the associated building permit, except that if no associated building permit is issued, the mechanical and/or plumbing permit shall expire two years from the date of issuance.
D. The building official may authorize a 30-day extension to an expired permit for the purpose of performing a final inspection and closing out the permit, provided the only inspection remaining at the time of permit expiration was the final inspection and, further, that not more than 90 days have passed since the time limitation of permit has passed and, further, subject to:
1. The inspection fees charged during a 30-day extension period shall be equal to twice the normal building inspector’s current hourly rate as specified in the current fee resolution; and
2. The 30-day extension will commence on the date of written city approval. If deficient items noted during the final inspection are not completed within the 30-day extension period, the permit shall return to expired status. (Ord. 2269 § 13, 2018; Ord. 2124 § 2 (Exh.
