City of Dawsonville considering adding fees for new construction
Fees won’t slow down growth, consultant says
City hall
The Dawsonville city council is considering moving forward with a study to determine if they want to implement impact fees, or fees charged to new development in order to pay for services demanded by that new growth. The council on Dec. 17 heard a presentation from Bill Ross of Ross and Associates, the same consulting company that created a study and impact fee schedule that was adopted by the county board of commissioners earlier this year. The board of commissioners passed impact fees at the maximum allowable amount on Aug. 16, and have since collected over $380,000.
