Section 9-101:  APPLICATION

    A. Any person desiring to commence or proceed to erect, construct, repair, enlarge, or relocate any building, dwelling, structure, fence or concrete or cause the same to be done shall file with the city clerk an application for a building permit.  The application shall be in writing on a form to be furnished by the clerk.  Every such application shall set forth the legal description of the land upon which the construction or relocation is to take place, the nature of the use or occupancy, the principal dimensions, the estimated cost, the names of the owner and contractor, and such other information as may be requested thereon.

    B. The application, plans, and specifications filed with the city clerk shall be checked and examined by the enforcement officer and if they are found to be in conformity with the requirements of this chapter and all other ordinances applicable thereto, the enforcement officer shall authorize the city clerk to issue the said applicant a permit upon payment of the permit fee set by resolution of the City Council and kept on file in the city office.  Standard permit fees shall, however, apply only in the case of on-time (before construction) filings.  Any application filed after construction has commenced shall pay a fee that is two times the standard fee.

    C. Whenever there is a discrepancy between permit application procedures contained herein and those contained in any building code adopted by reference, the provisions contained herein shall govern.  (Neb. Rev. Stat. §§17-130 through 17-132, 17-550, 17-1001)

Section 9-102:  LIMITATION

    If the work for which a permit has been issued shall not have begun within one year of the date thereof, with continual progress on the project, or if the construction is discontinued for a period of six months, the permit shall be void.  Before work can be started or resumed, a new permit shall be obtained in the same manner and form as an original permit.

Section 9-103:  DUPLICATE TO COUNTY ASSESSOR

    Whenever a building permit is issued within the city's jurisdiction, a summary listing of such permits shall be filed with the county assessor by the city clerk.  (Neb. Rev. Stat. §§18-1743)
