Public Hearings     |     City Council Agendas & Summaries


May 21, 2002 Public Hearing:

  1. HOUSING CODE INSPECTION AND RENTAL HOUSING SAFETY PROGRAM FEES

Recommendation:  The City of Berkeley Housing Department is proposing the following fee changes:

  1. Housing Code Inspection Fee - Under the current fee structure for housing code inspections, homeowners are charged $200 for each reinspection in which it has been determined that the owner has failed to correct all cited housing code violations.  The current fee structure reduces this fee to $125 if there are other units within the same building that are currently active and subject to the higher fee amount.  The proposed change eliminates the two-tiered fee structure for housing code inspection fees.  Under the new proposal, homeowners will be charged $200 for each reinspection in which it is determined that all cited housing code violations have not been corrected regardless of the number of active cases from the same building.  The proposed schedule does not charge for initial inspections conducted or for reinspections in which it has been determined that all housing code violations have been corrected.
     

  2. Certification Fee for the Rental Housing Safety Program - The City is proposing to establish an annual fee of $10 per unit for all rental units in building complexes containing three or more units as part of the Rental Housing and Safety Program (RHSP).  This fee is intended to offset the operational costs for the RHSP program which requires owners to certify that their units meet certain safety requirements.  For further information, contact Ted Katayama of the Housing Department: 981-5429.
