* Logonsport PharosTribune New Building Permit Statute Now In Efiect County Assessor Awaits Word From State Officials on Administration of Law. County Aisessor J. Stewart Buchanan today awaited instruc- tlo.s from the state board of tax commissioners and the stale board of accounts about letting up the machinery lor the administration of the new state law requiring a county building permit for all construction or repairs costing more than f 1.000. The law went into effect September 10 but the required -permit forma have not yet been printed and only one 50-cent fee has been received thus far by the county assessor for the county feneral fund under terms of the new law. JU»t file With Assessor Th« law specified that anyone planning construction or repairs costing more than $1,000 "before commencing such work shall file with' the county assessor of the county in which such construction or repairing is to be done a building permit, issued by the proper building inspector." The permit must give the location, the estimated cost, and the estimated time of completion of the proposed construction or repair worlt. All applications must be accompanied by a 50-cent fee to be paid into the county general fond. Herbert Holmes, field representative of the 'state tax board, has advised assessors that the law applies to construction both within and t without the city limits. For construction within the city the builder must obtain both a city and a county permit it the value of the improvement exceeds 11,000. The major purpose of the new state law is to provide a means of checking on improvements to real estate so that they will not escape assessment. The law provides a fine up to $25 for anyone failing to fil'. such a permit.
