A. Fees sufficient to cover the costs of administration, inspection, publication of notice, and similar matters may be charged to applicants for permits, approvals, variances, and other administrative relief. Appeal filing fees are not intended to cover all City costs. The amount of the fees charged shall be as established by resolution of the City Council.
B. All permit applications shall be accompanied by an application fee as set by resolution of the City Council. Application fees are for City processing services, and are not refundable because an application is denied or modified. The City Council may adopt rules providing for the partial refund of application fees for withdrawn applications or appeals in relation to actual City costs expended to the time a written request is received to withdraw the application or appeal.
