* Initial Design Fee Deposit is required before a detailed Cost Estimate can be prepared. After the Initial Design Fee Deposit has been paid, an Engineering Field Technician will meet with you to look at your job so that a Cost Estimate can be prepared. The Cost Estimate may include costs associated with permitting, easement acquisition, required material to complete the job, and trip charges. When the Cost Estimate is completed, the Member will receive an Invoice (based on the Cost Estimate) . When the Invoice is paid, this payment is referred to as Aid-to-Construction; the Initial Design Fee Deposit that was previously paid will be credited to your Aid-to-Construction. If unforeseen costs arise during the construction process, the Member could receive an invoice for the additional costs in which the Member will be responsible for paying after construction has been completed.
