WVC 21 - 10 - 4 §21-10-4. Inspection and permit fees.
(a) The Division shall charge inspection and permit fees. The annual permit fee is one hundred dollars for each ride or attraction. The annual inspection fee, if an inspection is to be done by the Division, is one hundred dollars for each ride or attraction. The annual inspection fee, if an inspection is to be done by the Division, is due at the time of application for the annual permit. The Division shall waive the inspection fee for any ride or attraction whose owner provides proof of nonprofit business status or for any ride or attraction whose owner provides proof that an inspection has been completed within the last year by a certified special inspector as provided in section six of this article.

(b) The Division may charge additional inspection fees equal to the annual inspection fee for additional inspections required as the result of the condemnation of a device for safety standards violations and for inspections required as a result of accidents involving serious or fatal injury. If any owner or operator requires an inspection as the result of a violation of the permitting requirements of section six of this article, the Division shall charge the owner or operator seventy-five dollars per hour in addition to the established inspection fee, including travel time.

(c) All fees received shall be deposited in a special revenue account in the State Treasury known as the "Amusement Rides and Amusement Attractions Safety Fund". The Division may use moneys from the fund for the purpose of enforcement of the provisions of this article. Expenditures are not authorized from collections, but are to be made only in accordance with appropriation by the Legislature and in accordance with the provisions of article three, chapter twelve of this code and upon fulfillment of the provisions of article two, chapter eleven-b of this code.

(d) No inspection fee may be charged public agencies.

(e) The Division shall issue, and the owner, operator or both of the amusement rides and amusement attractions shall visibly display to the public, inspection stickers denoting and signifying that the inspection and permit fee authorized by this section has been paid or waived.
