The CONSTANT fee formula enables you to establish a set fee independent of ranges or valuations. For example, if you want to establish a flat $35 rate for an electrical permit, you can use the CONSTANT fee formula to establish the $35 fee.

Any fee calculated using this formula is the product of the constant and the quantity that a user enters while assessing fees. For example, if you determine the constant for any electrical permit to be “35” and a user enters “2” as the quantity, then the total fee for two electrical permits is $70.00.
