2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill exempts counties, municipalities, and entities created by them, and school districts from State permitting fees. This concept is similar to that set forth in N.J.S.A.52:27D-126c, which exempts various governmental units from municipal fees and charges for construction permits. The State permitting fees have the same effect as an unfunded mandate on local units because the property tax and customer service fees, in the case of local authorities, are the only source of revenue available to pay the permitting fees. In addition, the bill would also allow a local unit to request that a fine or penalty that has been levied against it by a State department or agency be extinguished or reimbursed; provided that the local unit resolves the underlying violation within a year's time. The issuing authority may require a shorter resolution period when the public safety is a concern.
