Agenda Item Brief: The Builders Association of Northern Nevada has requested that the local jurisdictions responsible for issuing building permits consider the deferral of building permit fees from the time of building permit issuance to prior to certificate of occupancy. At the December 9, 2013 City Council meeting, Councilman Lawson formerly requested that City Staff investigate the issues related to allowing for fees to be deferred . On March 10, 2014 Community Services Staff presented the results of the investigation and the City Council directed to the City Manager to initiate an amendment to Title 13 of the Sparks Municipal Code to allow for the deferral of sewer connection fees. Adoption of the proposed bill will amend, by ordinance, Title 13 of the Sparks Municipal Code and allow for the payment of sewer connection fees to be deferred until time of certificate of occupancy.
