5.16.010 Permits not otherwise provided for.

This section shall apply to any permits not otherwise specifically provided for in any other section.

5.16.020 Application and processing fee.

There is hereby established an application and processing fee in the amount of actual costs incurred by the city which arise out of the processing of any permit application. These costs shall include costs for engineering, legal or other consultant fees, city staff time and an overhead fee for city processing.

5.16.030 Application fee – Collection.

The full amount of costs set out in MCMC 5.16.020 as estimated by the city manager or his designee shall be collected at the time the permit application is submitted as a deposit toward such expenses. In the event such expenses exceed the amount of the deposit prior to the conclusion of processing, the city manager or designee shall determine if it is likely that additional expenses will be incurred, and if so, shall require that the deposit be supplemented in an amount as shall appear to be necessary to secure payment of projected expenses. If any statement for expenses submitted by the city to the applicant remains unpaid for more than 30 days after the date such statement was mailed to the applicant or other responsible party, interest shall accrue on the unpaid balance commencing on the thirty-first day from mailing at the rate of 12 percent per annum. In the event the amount of the deposit for fees exceeds the actual costs for such services, such excess amount shall be refunded to the applicant upon receipt of a written request for refund. In all cases where a deposit for costs is required, the processing of the application shall not commence or continue until the deposit or any required supplement thereof has been made.
