Impact fee study on tap for Henry County

The Henry County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously at its June 16 regular meeting to approve a resolution awarding a $70,650 contract to Ross & Associates for consulting services regarding an impact fee study. According to county planning and economic development head Toussaint Kirk, the study would result in an updated fee schedule and the addition of some roads.

The current fee schedule was implemented in 2003, around the time impact fees were first approved for the county, and Kirk said that schedule has not changed since then. The money for the consulting service would come from fund balance if necessary.
