The Town of Brookhaven has updated the Town Code & Fees

As of February 25, 2019, the method for establishing fees has changed for the following: 
  • All building permits
  • Universal design permits
  • Fire prevention fees
  • Sign permits
  • Towing business fees
  • Tree preservation fees
  • Zoning and land use regulation fees
  • Brookhaven Calabro Airport fees
  • Department of the Assessor fees.

The formula used to calculate fees is (Current Fee) + ((B-A)/A x (Current Fee)) = New Fee. The formula was derived pursuant to the Consumer Price Index.
  • B represents the price index from July to June of the immediately preceding year. 
  • A is the price index for July of the immediately preceding year.
Because all variables in the formula are subject to change, the fees will increase each year on January 1st.
