The Santa Monica City Council approved changes at its Tuesday meeting to the commercial fire inspections fees.
That produced a “Tiered Fee Schedule”.
This tiered fee is similar to that of the residential fee schedule, and creates a more equitable approach to billing business owners for fire inspections based on their square footage.
Non-High Rise Commercial Inspections – Individual Suite or Unit Inspection
Square Footage / Fee
0 to 2000 / $73.00
2001 to 5000 / $146.00
5001 to 10,000 / $219.00
10,001 or more / $365.00
Non-High Rise Commercial Inspections – Common Area Inspection
