Fee Schedule

The Ankeny Fire Department collects fees for submitted plan reviews and operational permits. The fees may be paid by check, credit card or cash in the exact amount and must be presented with the plan review or when an operational permit is issued.

Non-payment will result in delays of plan review approval and denied operational permits. Checks should be made out to the Ankeny Fire Department. A $20 fee will be added for insufficient funds or returned checks.
