The municipality says wildfire rebuild permits applied for online through E-Permitting will now be exempt from submitting permit fees.
Originally homeowners needed to submit a refund request, as there was no option to opt out of submitting fees.
When using the E-Permitting feature on the RMWB website, the exempt fee button is only for wildfire rebuild permits.
Permits that have been issued and fees were paid, homeowners are responsible for applying for a refund.
Residents are encouraged to confirm with their contractors that permit fees are not charged or quoted, and thus excluded from the cost of rebuilding.
