Public Meeting on Impact Fees

A public hearing on proposed impact fees will be held by Kootenai County next week.

An advisory committee recommended the fees on future growth to the County to help fund area fire and highway district projects and county services.

The fees range from as low as $305 to over $3000 and not everyone is happy about them, saying they put the burden on new construction rather than existing homeowners and businesses.

Here's the details from the Coeur d'Alene Press. What's your thoughts on the subject?
