Fee for original permit shall be eighty-four dollars ($84.00). Application for the permit shall be accompanied by specifications in duplicate, in such form as the director shall require. Each permit shall expire one year from date of issue. Fee for annual renewal of a sterilizing permit shall be one-half ( 1 / 2 ) the original fee.
