[Adopted as § 1.15 of the 2000 Code]
The Village Clerk-Treasurer shall charge property owners fees for services, pursuant to Wisconsin Statutes, including §§ 66.0627 and 66.0703, such as in the following circumstances:
A Village of Hobart property owner shall be charged for fees incurred by the Village of Hobart whenever a property owner contacts the Village Attorney, Village Engineer, Village Architect or other of the Village's professional and/or administrative staff (the "professional"), whether the professional is employed by the Village or independently contracted, if said contact and subsequent service results in a charge to the Village of Hobart for that professional's time and services and said service is not a service supplied to the Village of Hobart as a whole.
A Village of Hobart property owner shall be charged for fees incurred by the Village of Hobart whenever the Village Board, Village Administrator, Village Clerk-Treasurer, or other Village official contacts the Village Attorney, Village Engineer, Village Architect, or any of the Village's professional staff, whether such professional staff is employed by the Village or independently contracted, regarding an application received from a property owner, if said contact and subsequent service results in a charge to the Village of Hobart for that professional's time and services and said service is not a service supplied to the Village of Hobart as a whole.
A Village of Hobart property owner shall be charged for fees incurred by the Village of Hobart whenever, at the property owner's request, the Village incurs time and/or expense associated in considering certified survey maps, subdivision plats, rezoning petitions, conditional use permit petitions, site development applications, and other petitions related to the development of land in the Village of Hobart.
The Village Clerk-Treasurer shall give each property owner billed for current services as provided for herein notice that they shall have a specified period of time not less than 30 days to pay. Said notice shall also state that within 15 days of the date of the notice, the property owner may request a hearing before the Village Board regarding the charge against the property. Said notice shall also include an itemized statement of the professional services fees to be charged. Thereafter, if the property owner requests a hearing within the proper time period, the matter shall proceed as described in § 163-3, Appeal to Village Board. If a hearing is not requested within the required time period if that charge remains unpaid, the Village Clerk-Treasurer shall automatically charge that delinquent bill against the property on the tax roll as provided by law. In the event the statement rendered to the property owner becomes delinquent too late in the year to be extended on that year's tax roll, then the delinquent charge shall be extended to the following year's tax roll.
Upon receipt of a timely request for hearing, the Village Board shall hold a hearing regarding the property charges at its next scheduled meeting or as soon as reasonably possible thereafter. Such hearing shall be preceded by posted public notice and reasonable notice, via first class mail, to the property owner. In the event a hearing is requested, no charges shall be placed on the tax roll unless and until such hearing has been held and a decision has been rendered by the Village Board, and the Village Board approves the charges against the tax roll in whole or in part. If approved only in part, only that part of the charges that are approved may be charged against the tax roll.
Whenever it is requested that the Village of Hobart grant approval to any other municipality, agency or other governmental body and that permit process requires the assistance of contracted professional staff of the Village as stated herein, the Village of Hobart shall charge the municipality, agency or governmental body the same as a property owner as stated within this article.
