A. 
Findings. The Township Council of the Township of Willingboro hereby finds and determines that administrative costs and professional fees related to matters before the Township Council, the Planning Board and the Zoning Board of Adjustment should be borne by the applicants who are seeking approvals from those Boards.
(1) 
The application fee shall include the publication of a notice of decision, which publication shall be in the form determined by the Township Clerk and which may be combined with similar notices into a single publication. The applicant shall remain responsible for giving notice of the pending application as required by law. Whenever an application includes more than one approval request, the sum of the individual fees shall be required.
(2) 
The application fee does not cover the cost of a court reporter to make a transcript. If the applicant desires to have a court reporter present, the cost for taking testimony and transcribing it and providing a copy of the transcript to the Township shall be at the expense of the applicant. Applicants shall be advised that the Township prepares verbatim minutes of all public hearings and that copies of the verbatim minutes are available for the fee established in this chapter.
(3) 
In addition to the application fees, the applicant shall be responsible, in accordance with N.J.S.A. 40:55D-53.2, for the professional review fees incurred in conjunction with an application and for the inspection of any improvements. The professional review fees shall include the fees of the Township Engineer, Township planning consultant, Township Solicitor, Planning Board Solicitor, Zoning Board Solicitor or other consultant authorized by the Township Council, the Planning Board or the Zoning Board of Adjustment for a specific matter.
(4) 
Whenever an application is filed with the Planning Board or the Zoning Board of Adjustment or the Township Council, the applicant shall pay to the Township of Willingboro the application fee and an initial escrow deposit in the amount set forth in the table below.
(5) 
The professional review fees shall be paid out of the escrow deposit, and any monies in the escrow deposit which are not required shall be refunded to the applicant. Whenever it shall appear that the funds in the escrow deposit are insufficient to cover the professional review fees, the Township shall notify the applicant that an additional deposit is required and the amount that is required. The applicant shall make that additional deposit within 10 days after being notified.
(6) 
Interest on deposits. No interest shall be paid on any deposit of less than $5,000. Whenever an amount of money in excess of $5,000 shall be deposited by an applicant with the Township, the money, until repaid or applied to the purposes for which it is deposited, including the applicant's portion of the interest earned thereon, except as otherwise provided in this section, shall continue to be the property of the applicant and shall be held in trust by the Township. Money deposited shall be held in escrow and shall be deposited in a banking institution as provided by law, in an account bearing interest at the minimum rate currently paid by the institution or depository on time or savings deposits. The Township shall notify the applicant in writing of the name and address of the institution or depository in which the deposit is made and the amount of the deposit. The Township shall not be required to refund an amount of interest paid on a deposit which does not exceed $100 for the year. If the amount of interest exceeds $100, that entire amount shall belong to the applicant and shall be refunded to the applicant annually or at the time the deposit is repaid or applied to the purposes for which it was deposited, as the case may be, except that the Township shall retain for administrative expenses a sum equivalent to 33 1/3% of the entire interest amount, as an administrative and custodial fee.
(7) 
Whenever professional review fees will be incurred as the result of review conducted prior to the formal submission of an application, no such review shall be conducted until the applicant shall have requested the review and shall have agreed, in writing, to be responsible for the professional review fees. In any such instance, the Township Clerk shall determine the amount of escrow deposit that will be required.
