Explanation

The bill results in a potential revenue gain to municipalities by allowing them to establish fees for contractors who commence work without obtaining necessary permits. The revenue gain will vary based on the fees established by municipalities but is expected to be minimal. As an example, the City of Stamford currently issues between 50 and 100 stop work orders per year for such contractors.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to the number of fees issued.
