GBUAPCD RULE 304 CEQA LEAD AGENCY FEE
LAST REVISED 11/11/11

RULE 304. CEQA Lead Agency Fee

Whenever the Great Basin Unified APCD acts as Lead Agency for an Environmental Impact Report or Negative Declaration, the Air Pollution Control Officer may charge the proponent a fee which is not to exceed the cost to the District of the work required.

The fee for work done directly by the District will be calculated on the basis of actual cost ($30 per hour for professional and technical staff and $15 per hour for clerical staff). If the Air Pollution Control Officer determines on the basis of the Initial Study, EIRs on similar projects, or in consultation with other agencies that it is necessary to hire a consultant to prepare the EIR or to advise the District on non-air-quality impacts, the consultants fee will be passed on to the proponent.

Failure to pay this fee shall incur the same penalties as failure to pay a permit fee (Rule 300D).
