The Brookfield Board of Selectmen has approved a measure allowing the Land Use Office to charge a $25 processing fee for Wetlands permit transfer applications. There's a processing that has to take place when there's a change in ownership and a permit is still outstanding.
The board also approved a new ordinance that would establish additional Land Use fees. The ordinance delegates back to the land use agencies the ability to set their fees without going through an ordinance change every time.
The ordinance allows the Inland Wetlands Commission, Planning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals and Zoning Commission to set and collect fees for the processing of permits, design review approvals, subdivisions and resubdivisions of land, and petitions for variances, appeals and site plans, and more.
