What is the cost associated with a wrecking permit?

In the city of Louisville, the cost of your wrecking permit will depend on what kind of permit is issued to you. Currently, there are three types of permits - type "A", type "B", and type "C". Below is a brief outline of the cost associated with each permit type:

  • Type A: any building with two story's or any structure that is less than 35 feet in height with less than 3,000 of floor space - $50 per 1,000 sq ft, $10 for every additional 1,000 square feet
