In addition to the state asbestos fees paid when a notification is submitted, there is a regional user fee associated with each notification of demolition and renovation/abatement submitted to the State (whether the submittal is done online or via hard copy). For each original notification, Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency charges $100 fee. Starting October 1, 2018, the Agency has also charged $50 for each revised notification, up to three revisions. These regional user fees generate the funding required to review notifications and perform inspections of properties being demolished, renovated or abated in Butler, Clermont, Hamilton and Warren counties.
The Agency issues invoices on a semi-annual basis. These invoices are emailed around January 10 and July 10. For each billing cycle, you will be billed for each notification where the projects have been completed by the end of the previous quarter and marked as settled by Ohio EPA. Payment should be submitted to our Agency by the due date indicated on the letter which accompanies the invoice. We encourage you to use our online payment system. Checks and money orders should be made payable to the Treasurer of Hamilton County.
Please contact Dawn Mays (513-946-7758 or firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions concerning these regional user fees.
