Council approves waiving construction fees

The council also approved a resolution to waive construction fees for new single-family homes in Chariton for fiscal year or FY 2020.

Chariton City Manager Laura Liegois explained that during the 2019 fiscal year, the City of Chariton waived the construction permit fees for new single-family homes built in the Chariton city limits.

“It would be beneficial to continue this practice to continue new opportunities for our residents in Chariton. We have seen a successful start with new houses being built here. All permit holders will have to meet the building codes and have their structure completed in a timely manner. If they don’t, then the permit fees will apply,” Liegois said.
