The Fire Department works with architects, engineers, building contractors, and other city departments during the pre-application phases of commercial developments and reviews plans for all new or updated commercial buildings in order to verify the compliance of fire alarms, fire suppression, and other fire protection systems.
The Ankeny Fire Department collects fees for submitted plan reviews and operational permits. The fees may be paid by check, credit card, or cash in the exact amount and must be presented with the plan review or when an operational permit is issued.
Non-payment will result in delays in plan review approval and denied operational permits. Checks should be made out to the Ankeny Fire Department. A $20 fee will be added for insufficient funds or returned checks.
