Many of the reductions affect building or remodeling projects. More than a quarter of them relate to building permits and zoning certificates, while 33 others deal with planning and development review fees, according to the list. An additional 45 reductions were to fees for electricity and plumbing permits and licenses. The changes are helpful to those in the construction business but are minimal when compared with overall project costs, said Frank Dertzbaugh, president of a Frederick remodeling company.
