County commissioners approved a fee schedule revision for the department of planning and zoning to require permits for accessory buildings 120 square feet or larger instead of 320 square feet or larger. ’In most counties and states and according to the international code, it should be 120 square feet instead of 320 that requires a permit,’ said planning and zoning director David Allen. ‘We want to continue to align our code with the international standard.’The cost for a 120 square foot accessory building with a cement foundation and electricity would be 25 cents per square foot and 10 cents per square foot for buildings without a foundation or electricity. The department monitors the way foundations are laid and electricity is installed to make sure projects are up to code.
