Here’s a link to the Article as it will appear on the Ballot:
What it means: The current ordinance reads: “A set of hydraulic calculations, floor plans and specification sheet on all control valves, alarm valves, Fire Department connection, pressure alarm switch, water flow switch, tamper switch and backflow preventers must be submitted with the application. Permit fee of $40 per structure, payable to the Town of Hampton, must be submitted with the application.” Article 31 would allow the Town to charge developers a fee more in line with the Town’s costs to review all of the information on the submitted plans. The fees would be set by the Board of Selectman.
Those in favor say: The current fee is considerably less than the required resources to work with the developers on new and refurbished properties.
Those against say: No one spoke against this Article at Deliberative Session.
Fiscal Impact: No tax impact.
