Can a municipality charge a fee for a building permit on agricultural land

Ability of Municipalities to Charge a Fee for Building Permits for Agricultural (AG January 28, 2010)

Tenn. Code Ann. 6-54-126 does not prohibit a municipality from charging a fee for building permits on agricultural land. It is only concerned with a municipality's power to regulate use of the land and not with it's ability to require a building permit.
