Surcharge now covers all right of way permit applications

Tuesday, September 11, 2018 by Katy McElroy

The Austin Transportation Department has announced that the Technology Improvement Surcharge fee will soon be applied to applications for Street Event and Safety permits. The 4 percent surcharge for transactions in the Right of Way Management Approval Network (ROWMAN) permitting system first went into effect on Oct. 1, 2017, but until now it had excluded those types of permits. The department will begin applying the surcharge on Street Event and Safety permit applications beginning Oct. 1.
