The Santa Monica City Council approved changes at its Tuesday meeting to the commercial fire inspections fees.

That produced a “Tiered Fee Schedule”.

This tiered fee is similar to that of the residential fee schedule, and creates a more equitable approach to billing business owners for fire inspections based on their square footage.

2001 to 5000 / $146.00
