A new Technology Improvement Surcharge fee of 4% for Right of Way permits was implemented in the 2017/2016 City of Austin Budget beginning October 1, 2017. The fee is added per transaction in the Right of Way Management Approval Network (ROWMAN) permitting system. To date, that fee has not been applied to Street Event or Safety permits.
Please be advised that beginning October 1, 2018, all applications submitted after this date for all permits issued in the right-of-way will be subject to the surcharge fee.
Please let us know if you have any questions or need further information.
