The Saukville Village Board updated its fee schedule for building permits and other items on Tuesday, increasing many of the charges.

The last time some of the fees were updated was in March 2018, Village Administrator Dawn Wagner said.

The village adjusts its building permit fees to keep them in line with the Village of Grafton, which provides building inspection services to the Village of Saukville.    

“The fee schedule is reviewed annually and fees are adjusted as necessary,” Wagner said.
