In order to accommodate the high cost and need to continually replace telecommunications, data, network, hardware, and software systems caused by a continuous and rapidly changing technology environment, the technology fees shall be applied to the following transactions:

A. Utility billing. A fee of one dollar ($1) per bill for every utility bill issued, whether the bill includes any combination of water, sewer, or storm drainage charges.

B. Business license fees. A fee of one dollar ($1) per business license transaction unless the business is exempt from payment of the business license fee.

C. Parks and recreation fees. A fee of one dollar ($1) per transaction for each registration for any parks and recreation program. For the purposes of this subsection, “transaction” shall mean the process of collecting and receipting fees and charges in the form of cash, check, or credit card payment for programs, services, or miscellaneous resale items offered by the parks and recreation department. The fee shall not apply to the following:

1. The fee shall not apply to any transactions or registrations at the Riverbend Golf Course;

2. The fee shall not apply to registrations or transactions with a total cost less than ten dollars ($10);

3. The fee shall not apply to drop-in transactions (such as, for example and without limitation, lunch at the Senior Center or one (1) time payment for use of the weight room at Kent Commons).

D. For all other applications, permits, inspections, registrations, transactions, and approvals established under the Kent City Code, the fee shall be established by council resolution.
