Permit fee reduction for use of agriculture buildings in Sedgwick County
The Sedgwick County Commission recently voted to reduce our building permit fees for agricultural buildings in the county. The fee changes amounted to a 33-67% reduction from previous charges. This is an initiative led by County Commissioner Richard Ranzau as a result of phone calls from a constituent and Senator Carolyn McGinn.
Old rates: 38 cents per square foot for finished space and 30 cents per square foot for unfinished space
New rates: 25 cents per square foot for finished space and 20 cents per square foot for unfinished space up to 5,000 square feet and then 10 cents per square foot thereafter.
