Changes in Horry County Permit Fees
Category : Business Matters
Urgent Notice- The Horry County Building Department handed this to us the other day while we were picking up new permits. I wanted to let everyone know about it because it will affect any projects you might have planned for the future.
For a lot of projects, especially small non-structural remodeling projects like what we do, permits really aren’t necessary. It’s simply a way for the County to make more money without raising taxes. It’s also a great way to increase their budget and justify hiring more people by increasing their own workload artificially.
It’s not cool, but it’s something we’ve gotten used to.
The other downside of this new change is that it will delay simple permits from a day in some cases to weeks depending on how busy the County is.
If you have an ongoing or upcoming project with us, don’t worry, I’m not going to come back and ask for more money based on this. We’ll eat the extra costs on any permits for you based on this.
For any of you that might be planning upcoming projects with us that aren’t contracted yet, I’m going to stick to our old permit pricing for now and not raise it at all unless they do something else to add more costs in.
If you have any questions about this or anything else, you can e-mail me here, call the office at 843-238-4798, or drop by the showroom.
