Rockwood found a new way to recoup some of the costs of having someone on staff as building inspector.
A new plan-checking fee schedule was passed on first reading this month at the recommendation of building inspector Harold Ishman.
“This will reimburse the city some for what we pay him,” said Councilman Dudley Evans.
Officials said they pay Ishman about $30 an hour.
The fees would apply to anyone bringing in construction plans and blueprints for review.
