Lee County- Lots of growth, not a lot of money to pay for infrastructure. So, Lee County Commissioners continue to work on a plan to charge a fee for new development. Over the next twenty years, Lee County's population is expected to double.

The county put together an Impact Fee Advisory Committee to look at imposing fees on new construction to defray the costs of service expansion. The committee met Tuesday night. Soon, they'll determine what the fee would be.

"That's the next step, what we're working on right now with the commissioners is doing the calculations to get the actual numbers, but we don't know at this point," said Bob Ross, Ross and Associates based in Atlanta.

The committee will meet again February 8th.
