Regional Technology Fee

The Reno City Council, Sparks City Council, District Health Board, and Washoe County Board of County Commissioners (the “Regional Partners”) will consider a regional technology fee to help recover the capital outlay costs of a new regional license and permit program. One major advantage of the new program is the ability to provide online license and permit services for our customers for the first time.

The proposed regional technology fee will be $4 for annual business licenses, $2 for quarterly business licenses, and 4% of the total permit cost for all other permits (air quality, building, engineering, environmental health, planning and utility).

The Regional Partners hosted two public workshops on June 30, 2015 to discuss the potential impacts of the proposed regional technology fee on a business. The PowerPoint presentation shown at these workshops can be viewed through the following link: Regional License and Permits Program Public Workshop
