    101  PURPOSE:  To establish fees, pursuant to California Health and Safety Code Section
         41512.5, to be charged to emission sources, which are deemed not to be subject to

         required by law or by District rule or regulation, including, but not limited to, review,
         program implementation, inspection, and monitoring related thereto.

    110  EXEMPTION:  Asbestos-related fees will not be charged for the renovation or demolition
         of residences comprised of four or fewer dwelling units, unless such renovation or
         demolition is subject to the current National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air

    301  FEE REFUND:
         301.1  If a person cancels a plan, report, or application he/she may request a fee
                refund, provided:
                a. The person paid the fee for the plan, report, or application pursuant to
                   this rule, and
                b. The request is in writing, and
                c. The person requests the refund within 10 days following cancellation.
         301.2  Within thirty days of receiving the refund request, the Air Pollution Control
                Officer shall refund the portion of the fee that remained unused at the time
                of the cancellation.

    302  ASBESTOS FEES:  Upon submitting a plan for each unit where renovation or demolition
         occurs to the Air Pollution Control Officer, the owner or operator shall pay a fee for
         each plan submitted to the District.  For each project subject to the requirements of
         Rule 902-ASBESTOS, the following fee schedule shall apply:

       10,000 or more   10,000 or more  2,189 or more   $2,335

    *  This category applies to demolition projects only.
    **    If materials are in more than one category, the higher fee will apply

         302.2  No plan shall be accepted unless accompanied by the appropriate plan fee,
                except that no fee shall be required for emergency renovation projects as
                defined in Rule 902, Section 223, as long as the removal involves less than
                260 lineal feet of pipe or 160 square feet of material.

         302.3  If in the course of a demolition or renovation project pursuant to Rule 902,
                it is determined that the project belonged in a higher fee category than was
                initially determined, the owner or operator shall pay the balance of the fee
                for the higher category.

         302.4  If an owner or operator fails to report a change in any date as required by
                Rule 902, and the Air Pollution Control Officer determines that such failure
                necessitated expenditure of additional time by the District, over and above
                the time expenditure upon which the plan fee is based, then the owner or
                operator shall pay an additional fee of $50 per hour of additional time,
                billable in quarter hour segments, with a minimum charge of $25.

    303  FLEET INVENTORY REPORT FEE:  Each fleet operator subject to the fleet inventory
         requirements of Rule 1002--FLEET INVENTORY--shall annually pay a fee on the
         submittal date defined and stipulated pursuant to that rule.
         303.1  The fee amount per fiscal year shall be $190.
         303.2  If the fleet operator fails to pay the fee by the submittal date, the fee shall
                increase by one half the amount.  The Air Pollution Control Officer shall
                notify the fleet operator by mail of the fee increase.  The fleet operator shall
                pay the increased fee within 30 days after the notice is mailed.

    304  APPLICATION FEE RULE 1005:  Any application submitted pursuant to Rule 1005 
         MOBILE SOURCE EMISSION REDUCTION CREDITS/BANKING shall be accompanied by
         a fee.
         304.1  The fee shall reflect the actual labor costs incurred by the District in
                processing the application, based on the District's standard hourly rate
                schedule.  Notwithstanding the provisions of other rules, the District's
                standard hourly rate shall be the Time and Materials Labor Rate, as set forth
                in Rule 301 PERMIT FEES - STATIONARY SOURCE.
         304.2  The Air Pollution Control Officer shall provide the applicant with an estimate
                of the time to process the application, and the cost that will be incurred.
         304.3  The applicant may request a conference with the Air Pollution Control Officer
                to review the cost estimate.  If the applicant provides additional information
                that will reduce the amount of time the District staff needs to process the
                application, the cost estimate for the application fee shall be reduced
                accordingly.
         304.4  The estimated application fee shall be paid in full, to the District, prior to
                District staff processing the application.
         304.5  The Air Pollution Control Officer shall bill the applicant for any application
                processing costs based on actual District labor costs that exceed the
                estimated fee amount.  The applicant shall pay the additional fee amount
                prior to the Air Pollution Control Officer's:
                a. Issuance to the applicant of a certificate of advance placement or a
                   mobile source emission reduction credit, or
                b. Approval of a contractual agreement with the applicant.
         304.6  The District will refund any unused portion of the application fee if:
                a. The applicant withdraws the application, or
                b. Actual labor costs from processing the application are less than
                   estimated.
