Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - The Grand Forks finance and development committee wants to raise city permit fees.

Places like swimming pools, hotels and restaurants would see a three percent increase.

It would cover costs of service and inspections. The hike is on par with inflation. The board feels raising fees every few years makes increases easier to handle.

“There are well over 100 different fee schedules. If people think they're too high or too low they may want to adjust."

The council will vote next Monday.
