Per LAMC 62.110 - Class "B" Permit Fees, the fees charged by BOE to process a "B" Permit shall be the actual cost of services provided by the City for issuance and oversight of the permit and permitted project, except for costs that may be incurred by a Proprietary Department subject to the provisions of Article VI of the Los Angeles City Charter, and except for the Street Damage Restoration Fee (LAMC 62.06 - Establishment of a Street Damage Restoration Fee).
Standard Fees, at a minimum, are reviewed on an annual basis. The most current version of the City’s Standard Fee List is located at the BOE website under Permits (https://engineering.lacity.gov/permits).
The determination of the amount of actual City costs shall be made pursuant to the provisions of LAMC 62.05 (a)(2), and the determination shall include but not be limited to the following costs:
- Design, plan checking, surveying and all engineering costs and fees;
- Testing of materials;
- Furnishing of streetlight energy;
- Furnishing and installing street name signs, street trees, traffic warning or regulatory signs; and
- Sandblasting obsolete pavement markings.
Notwithstanding the first sentence of LAMC 62.110(a), the City reserves the right to impose additional fees and charges for services provided or costs incurred that were not included in the basis of the determination of the City's actual costs.
