The Planning Director or authorized designee shall, when deemed necessary, require reasonable substantiation of value stated in any application for a building permit.
Any person, firm or corporation who performs or causes to be performed any work for which a permit is required prior to obtaining such permit, shall be subject to double the normal fee for such permit.
