  • Various permits under each category are set up with requirements for approvals, inspections and rates
  • Rates can be flat fees, per unit fees, construction value fees, construction area and other methods
  • Rate for re-inspections can be assessed
  • Selection of a permit type by the user will populate automatically rates, approvals, inspection and re-inspection fees and required inspections automatically
  • Permit information fields include permit type data, applicant name, owner information, contact and contractor(s) information, property information, zoning information, work detail, construction area information, user-defined fields, conditions of approval and transaction history
  • Permit is linked to property tax module through common property tax i.d.
  • System is ArcView compatible
  • System prints Permits and Certificates of Occupancy, where applicable
  • Municipalities can collect and record damage deposits where required, which can be refunded at the end of the project
  • Module produces pending inspection reports by inspection type and inspector
