Before any building or construction may begin, a sewer use and drainage permit (SUDP) must be obtained for each building and/or individual tenant associated with a project. 


Invoices for Sewer Use and Drainage Permit (SUDP) fees for permit issuance must be paid prior to December 31 of the invoice year.  Additional fees at the new year current rate may be assessed and payment required for any prior year invoices.
NOTE:  Inspection fee collection for required inspections will be changing soon.  Inspection fees will be assessed and charged as part of the SUDP invoice for permit issuance starting in the summer of 2015.
