Medina Journal-Register — The Village of Middleport changed its protocol Monday night by amending its code to allow fees to be changed by resolution instead of local law.
Previously, the village board needed to go through several steps in order to change any village fees, such as publishing a public notice and hosting a public hearing, before creating a local law.
By using resolutions to change fees, the village will save both time and money.
After the code was amended, the village board passed a resolution to change building permit fees.
In the past, building permits were issued on cost of the project alone, whether it be a pool or addition to a house.
Now, with the new fee scale, permits will be issued based on project cost and project type.
