F. Permit Renewal Fees

1. For the purposes of Section E, the permit renewal fee for the

facilities designated "basic" shall be for the facility shown.

Additional renewal fees shall be charged for other equipment

located in the basic facility and included in the Permit Category

list.

2. For the purposes of Section E, the yearly process rate will be

considered the greater of that amount allowed by permit condition

or that amount processed in the twelve months prior to the month

of permit renewal.

3. Renewal fees shown in Subsection E.1 do not include fees for

compliance source testing. Source testing fees shall be designated

per Section G.

4. Any necessary additional District staff time or resources dedicated

to determining compliance of a stationary source for the purpose

of renewing a Permit to Operate shall be charged to the holder

of the Permit at a rate which reflects labor costs as set

periodically by the Air Pollution Control Board and actual costs

incurred by the District and added to the renewal fees shown in

Section E.

G. Source Test Fees

1. Before granting or denying an application for a Permit to

Operate or in renewing a Permit to Operate, the Control Officer

may require the sampling and testing of air contaminants

discharged into the atmosphere from the article, machine,

equipment or other contrivance being evaluated. At the option

of the applicant, the applicant may contract with an independent

testing laboratory for the testing or may request the District

to perform the test. If the former option is selected, the

choice of test method and testing laboratory is subject to

the approval of the Control Officer. If the latter option is

selected and the District is willing to perform the test, the

applicant shall pay a fee for the source testing determined by

the District based on direct labor hours used, supplies and

services expended, and indirect costs incurred.

H. Application for an Alteration or Modification

1. Where a Permit to Operate has previously been granted for such

equipment under Rule 201 and an alteration or modification had

been made, the applicant shall be assessed a fee based upon

actual hours spent and costs incurred by the District for

application evaluation.

I. Transfer of Location or Owner

1. Where an application is filed for a Permit to Operate any

article, machine, equipment or other contrivance by reason

of transfer of location or transfer from one person to

another, or both, and no alteration, emission increase, or

addition has been made, the applicant shall pay $35.00.

J. Revised Permit Conditions

1. When an application is filed involving, exclusively, revisions

to the conditions of an existing Permit to Operate, as provided

in Rule 205, and there is no change or a decrease in ratings, the

applicant shall pay a filing fee of $50.00 and be assessed a

total fee based upon the actual hours spent and costs incurred by

the District for application evaluation.





K. Late Fee

1. When an Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate is issued or

renewed, it shall be accompanied by a statement of the fee to be

paid therefore. If the fee is not paid within thirty calendar

days after the statement of the fee has been issued, the Control

Officer shall thereupon promptly notify the applicant of the past

due fee by certified mail (second notice). If the past due fee

is not paid within thirty calendar days after the second notice

has been issued, the fee shall be increased by one-half the

amount thereof and the Control Officer shall thereupon promptly

issue to the applicant a statement which reflects the increased

fee and send that statement to said applicant by certified mail.

Non-payment of the increased fee within thirty calendar days

after the statement of the increased fee has been issued shall

result in automatic cancellation of the application or the

suspension of the Permit to Operate.

a. A Permit to Operate suspended for non-payment of fees shall

be reinstated only after payment of the original renewal

fee, any late fees, and a charge for all reasonable costs

incurred by the District through fee recovery and

enforcement actions resulting from said Permit suspension

as determined by the Control Officer; the Permit holder may

appeal assessment of this cost recovery charge by petition

to the Hearing Board.

L. Fee for Permit Granted by Hearing Board

Board after denial by the Control Officer or after the applicant

deems his application denied, the applicant shall pay the

fee prescribed in Section D within thirty calendar days after

the date of the decision of the Hearing Board. Non-payment of

the fee within this period of time shall result in automatic

cancellation of the Permit and the application.

M. Duplicate Permit

writing to the Control Officer within ten calendar days after the

destruction, loss or defacement of a Permit to Operate and shall

contain the reason a duplicate permit is being requested. A fee of

$2.50 shall be paid for issuing each duplicate Permit to Operate.

N. NESHAPS Inspections

1. Any District staff time or resources dedicated to determining

compliance with Regulation VII, with the exception of asbestos

demolition or renovation, shall be charged to the person

responsible for the facility subject to that regulation at a

rate which reflects labor costs as set periodically by the Air

Pollution Control Board and actual costs incurred by the

District.

2. For each asbestos demolition and renovation project, the

following fee schedule shall apply:

a. For projects involving the removal or stripping of less

than 260 lineal feet of pipe; or less than 160 square feet
