Electrical Permit Fees for the City of Great Falls were updated on April 1, 2014. Those fees are effective through June 30, 2014.
In July 2011, City Commission authorized an automatic 2.5 percent annual increase in permit fees to take effect July 1 of each year to keep pace with inflation, to provide certainty to the development community and to avoid the need for occasional but large permit fee increases. In any year the Building Fund balance exceeds $600,000 as of June 30, the 2.5 percent fee increase is not applied and fees remain unchanged for another 12 months. This system is designed to achieve a cash balance in the enterprise fund that can weather a period of reduced revenues due to low construction activity while limiting the maximum fund balance in periods of high construction activity or in the event of the construction of very large projects.
