Fees and escrow.
A. 
The submission of any subdivision and land development plans are subject to the Warminster Township Fee Schedule as modified from time to time by resolution of the Board of Supervisors of Warminster Township to be used for Township costs of review, legal costs, and engineering costs related to the plans submitted. The amount of the refundable escrow fee shall be paid at the time of submission of any plans and may be used for the purposes defined in such resolution and the fee schedule. The applicant is required to maintain the original escrow deposit in the amount as indicated in the fee schedule. The Township shall require the applicant to post additional escrow in the event payments from such escrow reduce the amount below 20% of the original escrow deposit. The additional escrow amount shall be paid within 10 days of the request by the Township. The applicant shall agree at the time of the submission of the plans to the terms of this provision, including the understanding that the further review and approval of plans may be withheld pending the reimbursement of such escrow deposit to the Township. The applicant shall further agree that any such delays shall constitute an extension of time for the rendering of a decision by the Board of Supervisors.
B. 
The fee schedule adopted by resolution of the Board of Supervisors shall apply to the processing of sketch plans, lot line change plans, minor subdivision plans, major subdivision plans, land development plans, and all other plans processed by the Township as indicated in the fee schedule.
[Amended by Ord. 737, 1/19/2017]
C. 
When a set of plans is presented to the Licenses and Inspections Department pursuant to the procedures set forth within this chapter, the applicant shall deposit with the Licenses and Inspections Director a sum to cover the cost of processing the plan according to a schedule as from time to time approved by resolution of the Board of Supervisors.
D. 
If the escrow deposit is expended, the applicant shall make further deposits upon notice from the Licenses and Inspections Department in such a manner that the total deposit with the Township shall at all times equal the initial amount as determined by the Licenses and Inspections Department until approval of the plans and final acceptance of construction by Warminster Township.
E. 
Occupancy permits shall be withheld until all fees and costs have been paid to the Township in connection with the processing of any plans.
