At Quincy’s April 23 meeting, local businessmen Bruce Shelfer and George Hackney questioned Quincy’s permit costs for building commercial warehousing.
Total permit fees for a 12,000-square-foot commercial building in Quincy is approximately $22,238.00, said Shelfer and Hackney.
The men compared the cost with Tallahassee for the same-sized building, in which Tallahassee’s commercial permitting cost is only $7,392.00.
Comparing with Havana, Chattahoochee, Greensboro and Gadsden County, they all came in at $3,700.
The city decided to hold a workshop to address its permitting costs at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 22.
