The Building Code Department (BCD) is responsible for collecting Sewer Availability Charge (SAC) fees at the time of building permit issuance. A Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) Determination Letter must be received before issuance of the building permit for all new construction, change in use, remodeled, or demolished buildings where there is a change in the demand for sewage service. The application form must be submitted to BCD (at [email protected]) for review prior to being submitted to the Metropolitan Council.
For more information on the SAC process, see the SAC Procedure Manual.

Will BCD Issue a Permit Before the SAC Letter Is Received?
The Building Code Department will NOT issue a permit before the SAC letter is received. The Building Codes Department encourages you to submit your SAC determination application as early as possible.
