This chapter and future amendments will eventually contain all fees to be charged by the Township and its agencies, to the extent that the Township has the power to set such fees. In the event another level of government shall be exclusively empowered to set a fee or empowered to set a maximum fee, and there is a conflict with the fee set forth in this chapter, the fee or maximum allowable fee as determined by the other level of government shall control. In the event the amount of a fee set forth herein shall conflict with the fee set forth in any other provision of the Code of the Township of Millstone, the fees in this chapter shall control.
[Ord. No. 91-05, § 33-2]
