Citrus County Commissioner Jimmie T. Smith brought up the issue of mobility fees versus impact fees during a meeting of the Citrus County Commission. There’ll be further discussion, commissioners have decided (February 13, 2018).

The idea of comparing the two came during discussion and vote on the collection of impact fees at the issuance of Certification of Occupancy (CO), instead of when the permit is filed. The board also discussed the collection of impact fees at the issuance of Certification of Occupancy (CO), instead of when the permit is filed.
