West Point Mayor Robbie Robinson said that portions of the city code were out of date, and that he and Building Inspector Roy Shannon had been working to revise the ordinance for a few months. "Since becoming mayor, I've seen the value in the permit system," Robinson said. "Going through proper channels during construction saves lives and property."He said some of the costs for building permit fees, electrical inspection, plumbing permits and penalties hadn't been updated since the 1980s. The revised ordinance adds $10 to the upfront cost of each building permit.Citizens performing $1,000 or less in construction would be required to pay $25 for a permit. For those doing $1,001 to $50,000, the permit would cost $25 for the first $1,000 worth of work, plus $5 for each additional $1,000 worth of work.Those performing $50,001 to $100,000 in construction would be required to pay $270 for the first $50,000 worth of work, plus $3 for each additional thousand. Citizens performing $100,001 to $500,000 worth of construction would be required to pay $470 for the first $100,000 plus $3 for each additional fraction.A permit for $500,001 worth of work and up would be $1,670 for the first $500,000, plus $2 for each additional thousand. "We didn't arrive at these prices arbitrarily," Robinson said. "Our building inspector called around to some other towns in the state, and we used those numbers when setting our prices."As for plumbing, permits would cost $25 for each building sewer, $15 for installation, alteration or repair of water treating equipment, $10 for installation of a water heater, $25 for each building sewer replacement and $20 for vacuum breakers or backflow protective devices installed subsequent to the installation of the piping or equipment. The ordinance also made some changes to the amount charged for penalties, as Robinson said there was no definitive wording for some penalties in the previous ordinance. "We've had some problems with people commencing construction without obtaining a work permit in the past," he said.

The current field house measures at around 12,000 square feet. Waggoner estimated that it will cost approximately $50,000 to demolish the current structure.Of the defects outlined to the West Point School Board last week, Waggoner reiterated the cost to repair the roof of the current field house in order to make it waterproof. He said that he has a pre-bid meeting planned for this Wednesday in order to get more definitive bid estimates for the project.With respect to the cafeteria issues at East Side, Waggoner told the Consolidated Board that the flooring of the kitchen is a wood floor on wood joists with a crawl space underneath. Waggoner suggested replacing the current kitchen floor with a raised concrete floor slab, to bring the kithcen in line with other similar type structures. Previously Waggoner had provided the WPSD board with what he called a “rough, rough” estimate of $625,000. He outlined a project estimate to the WPCD in the amount of $675,000.West Point, MSNo author availableSchool board hears update on field house, cafeteriaDaily Times Leaderurn:publicid:dailypress.com:13306Change0Usable2015-04-21T11:34:26-04:00
