Fee Schedule

100 sq’ to 300 sq’                   flat $10.00 fee

Over 300 square feet to be $20.00 plus $.05 per square foot

Example

20X20          400 sq’  X  .05  =  $  20.00 - $20.00  =  $40.00 fee
24X24          576 sq’  X  .05  =        $  28.80  =$20.00 =  $48.80 fee
24X28          672 sq’  X  .05  =  $  33.60  =$20.00 =  $53.60 fee
28X40        1120 sq’  X  .05  =  $  56.00 = $20.00 = $76.00 fee
32X40        1280 sq’  X  .05  =  $  64.00 = $20.00 = $84.00 fee
34X50        1700 sq’  X  .05 =   $  85.00 = $20.00 = $105.00 fee
40X60        2400 sq’  X  .05 =  $  120.00 =$20.00 = $145.00 fee
50X70        3500 sq’  X  .05 =  $  175.00 =$20.00 = $195.00 fee
