The city of Aurora has changed the way that it charges permit fees for simple construction jobs to make the fees more predictable, simple and fair.

The city’s new flat-rate fee permits allow customers to pay the same permit fee for the same project type, regardless of the job’s value.

Flat-rate fee permits available include everything from water heater and furnace replacements to demolition and commercial roof replacements.

The new flat fee process has no effect on the calculation and collection of city use taxes. The customer must still provide building material costs so the city can accurately estimate city use and county taxes.
