Cost and Payments

ePlan Solutions provides the ePs services at zero cost to the jurisdiction. The cost of the services is paid for by the applicant prior to uploading files for review or receiving a permit. Typically these cost for projects are approximately 40% less than the cost to produce and deliver plans.

Permits that do not require a plan review are typically $5 plus 5% of the permit fee for jurisdictions that ePs collects the permit fee. Permits that require plan review range from $10 to $175 dependent upon the type, size and scope of the project.

ePs has partnered with Government Window to provide payments services for plan review fees and pemit fees. These payments are separated from the ePs payment during the transaction and delivered to the jurisdiction at the end of each day.

After consulting with Cherokee County and evaluating the alternatives, we selected e Plan Solutions to provide a digital plan review solution for the City of Dalton and Whitfield County. Not only did ePs demonstrate an ease of use, but their commitment to supporting the users of the system, both for the governments and the private sector made our decision quite simple.
