Permit Fees

Permit fees are calculated on the scope of work that is to be done. Each permit has a $150 base fee which covers the cost of inspections. Added onto that are various other fees for such things as monthly inspections (SWPPP), pavement cuts, sewer and storm drain taps, water taps, water meters, etc.

Below are two worksheets that list out the most common permit costs associated with utility maintenance and repair.  For larger projects where larger taps, meters and main pipelines are being installed, please contact Ogden City's Permit Coordinator.

Once the Permit is Issued...

  • Work MUST begin within 14 Days, or the permit will EXPIRE.
  • Once work begins, all work - including pavement patching - must completed within 7 days (3 days on Arterial or Major Roads)
  • Expired permits may be reinstated by paying a $30 Extension Fee.
