Is there a penalty for doing work in St. Johns County without a permit?

  • 8 August 2023

Yes. Due to the increased staff time involved in such a circumstance and the inspection scheduling involved, the fee is double the normal permit fee for the subject work plus $50.00. A permit that would normally cost $500.00 could cost as much as $1,050.00 with the penalty plus the additional cost to you of having to stop all current activities until the permit is approved.
