The Danbury City Council has approved new daycare inspection fees.  Officials tabled the inspection issue last fall, but there was renewed urgency after the state Office of Early Childhood sent out a warning letter to Danbury's Health and Human Services department over a lack of local inspections.  Local Director Michelle Morrisey says that could jeopardize the licensing status of otherwise compliant day cares.  Council members said questioned remained about duplicating state inspections and charging another fee.  A $75 inspection fee and a $125 one-time plan review fee for any new day care construction plans were adopted.  According to state law, commercial day care facilities and home-based facilities must apply to the city and pass health department inspections at least once every two years.
