Impact Fees FAQ's

The City of Whitefish confirmed a discrepancy in the determination of fixture counts compared to the 2018 Uniform Plumbing Code. These fixture counts are used to calculate the City's water and wastewater impact fees charged on additions and new construction using the City's utility infrastructure. 

The City is currently conducting an internal audit of all building permits issued from January 1, 2019, thru July 31, 2021, to determine the amount of any overcharges for water and/or wastewater impact fees that need to be refunded. Two separate City departments are involved in the audit and will submit their findings to the City Manager and Finance Director once the audit is complete. It is anticipated that this process will be completed within three (3) months, or by December 31, 2021.
