Film LA Production Alert – New DPW Fees

New County Department of Public Works (DPW) Fees to Take Effect July 28, 2011

On June 28, 2011, the Los Angeles Country Board of Supervisors approved the latest in a series of planned film fee increases from the Department of Public Works. The revised fees, which officially take effect on July 28, 2011, are as follows:

 Road Inspection / Closure Fee for Filming: Assessed once per day per DPW Filming Area. $312 (from $305)

 Flood Control Inspection / Monitor Fee – Motion Assessed once per day per DPW Filming Area. $798 (from $300)

 Flood Control Inspection / Monitor Fee – Still Assessed once per day per DPW Filming Area. $798 (from $100)


These new fees are separate from the Flood Permit Issuance Fee and Encroachment Permit Processing Fee introduced earlier. For questions about the new fees, and particularly those fees that can be assessed multiple times against a single FilmL.A. film permit, we urge you to contact our Production Planning Team at 213.977.8600.
