Beaver Dam May Extend Building Inspector Contract

10/18/11 – The Beaver Dam Operations Committee last night signed off on a proposed, six-year contract extension with its current building inspector. The contract with Wisconsin Building Inspections calls for the company to keep all of the revenue generated from building permit fees up to $100,000. The city would get 10% of revenue generated between $100,000 and $200,000 and split everything 50-50 after that. Under the current contract, the city does not see any money until $200,000 in fees are collected. The average collected from building permit fees over the past five years is $210,000. The will continue to keep 100% of the money generated from code compliance citations. The matter will go before the full council next month.
