SAN LUIS OBISPO COUNTY AIR POLLUTION CONTROL DISTRICT

RULE 301 - FEES
(Adopted 8/2/76; Revised 9/24/79 and 6/18/97)

A. All filing fees and fees for an Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate and other fees provided for in these Rules and Regulations shall be adopted by resolution of the Air Pollution Control Board of San Luis Obispo County, which resolution shall set such fees in reasonable amounts based as much as possible on the cost of the services performed for which such fee is charged.

B. If an application for an Authority to Construct or a Permit to Operate is cancelled, or if an Authority to Construct or a Permit to Operate is denied and such denial becomes final, the fee required herein shall not be refunded nor applied to any subsequent applications.

C. Refunds

  1. If a Permit to Operate is cancelled due to ownership change, all permit renewal fees previously paid shall not be refundable but will be applied as the new owner's fees until the next scheduled renewal.
  2. If a Permit to Operate is cancelled due to non-operation, and upon written request by the permittee concurrent with the cancellation, permit fees previously paid shall be refunded as follows:

    a. For Permits to Operate which are renewed annually, one-half of the unused portion of the renewal fees paid for the current renewal year. The "unused portion of the renewal fees" shall be determined by multiplying the renewal fees paid times the quotient of the number of months remaining in the renewal year, at the time of cancellation, divided by twelve.

    b. For Permits to Operate which are renewed less frequently than annually, one-half of the yearly prorated, unused portion of the renewal fees for the current renewal year plus the full amount of the yearly prorated fees for all subsequent renewal years. The "yearly prorated fee" shall be determined by dividing the total renewal fees paid by the number of years during the renewal period.
