Colo. Rev. Stat. § 12-115-121

Current through 2021 Legislative Session
Section 12-115-121 - Inspection fees
(1) As established pursuant to section 12-20-105, inspection fees shall be charged by the board and shall be set and categorized based upon the actual expense of inspecting each type of electrical installation.
(2)
(a) The maximum fee, established annually, chargeable for electrical inspections by any city, town, county, city and county, or qualified state institution of higher education shall not be more than one hundred twenty dollars, as adjusted annually, starting January 1, 2021, based on the annual percentage change in the United States department of labor's bureau of labor statistics consumer price index for Denver-Aurora-Lakewood for all items paid by all urban consumers, or its applicable predecessor or successor index. Additionally, a local government described in this subsection (2) or a qualified state institution of higher education may adjust the fee by imposing an additional tiered charge based on size or valuation of the improvement and a multiplier of eight percent of the fee. Neither a local government described in this subsection (2) nor a qualified state institution of higher education shall impose or collect any other fee or charge related to electrical inspections or permits.
(b) A qualified state institution of higher education may choose not to require fees as part of the permitting process. A documented permitting and inspection system must be instituted by each qualified state institution of higher education as a tracking system that is available to the board for the purpose of investigating any alleged violation of this article 115. The permitting and inspection system must include information specifying the project, the name of the inspector, the date of the inspection, the job-site address, the scope of the project, the type of the inspection, the result of the inspection, the reason and applicable code sections for partially passed or failed inspections, and the names of the contractors on the project who are subject to inspection.
(3) If an application is not filed in advance of the commencement of an installation, the inspection fee shall be twice the amount of the inspection fee set by the board pursuant to subsection (1) of this section.
