A. 
Legislative intent. It is the intent of the Board of Trustees to protect the health, safety and welfare of those residing in neighboring properties and the community at large from the impacts of land development and to facilitate the expeditious and appropriate processing and consideration of applications by providing the Board of Trustees, the Planning Board, the Zoning Board of Appeals, and the Board of Architecture and Historic Review with a mechanism by which they can seek the assistance of legal counsel or outside professionals and/or commission independent studies at the applicant's expense to assist in evaluating any matter over which the respective boards have jurisdiction. In addition to such services, it is the intention of the Board to charge the cost of special in-house studies and out-of-the-ordinary clerical costs to the applicant if reasonably related to the project/application under review. In order to accomplish these goals, the Board of Trustees is exercising its police power and authority under § 10(1)(ii)(a)(6), (11) and (12) and § 10(1)(ii)(d)(3)[1] of the Municipal Home Rule Law; §§ 4-412, 7-712, 7-712-a, 7-712-b, 7-718, 7-725-a, 7-728, 7-729,[2] 7-730, 7-732 and 7-734 of the Village Law and any other applicable provision now or hereinafter enacted to supersede and/or expand on the provisions of Village Law §§ 7-712, 7-712-a, 7-712-b, 7-718, 7-725-a, 7-728, 7-729, 7-730, 7-732 and 7-734 and any other applicable provision of law now or hereinafter enacted, so as to require payment of such fees as a condition of approval of the matter before the respective board, and the issuance of a building permit or other Village approval, in accordance with an implementing resolution adopted from time to time by the Board of Trustees.

B. 
As a condition of processing any matter over which the Board of Trustees, the Planning Board, the Zoning Board of Appeals, and the Board of Architecture and Historic Review have jurisdiction and pursuant only to an implementing resolution adopted by the Board of Trustees from time to time setting forth the extent to which applicants are obligated to pay the specified fees, the applicant to each such board shall be required to pay for the costs of such independent studies and/or outside consultants as may be reasonably related to the matter under review. If reasonably required for the application, the costs of special studies performed in-house and out-of-the-ordinary clerical expense shall also be charged to the applicant. All such costs shall be paid by certified check, money order, or a bank check and are in addition to any other required fee. Within 30 days of the written request for payment, the applicant shall submit to the Village Clerk, for deposit into a non-interest-bearing trust and agency account maintained by the Village, an amount determined by the board conducting the review to be utilized by the Village to pay for such services during the review process. Upon written request, the applicant shall be provided with copies of invoices submitted to the Village for the work of outside consultants as well as a written accounting of in-house expenses for services rendered. In the event the sum initially deposited by the applicant is not sufficient and additional funds are necessary, the applicant shall pay such additional sums within 20 days of the date of the written request for payment. After all reasonable charges have been paid to the vendor(s) by the Village and the Village has been fully reimbursed for its in-house costs, any balance remaining on deposit in the account shall be returned to the applicant. In the event an application is withdrawn at any stage by the applicant, any unused portion shall be returned to the applicant. The charges assessed to the applicant shall not in any case exceed the amount expended by the Village and the cost of the in-house expenses, as the case may be. The respective board shall audit the invoices submitted by the outside consultants and shall reject any excessive or unnecessary charges. The costs assessed to applicants shall include the cost of environmental charges. The costs assessed to applicants shall include the cost of environmental review pursuant to the State Environmental Quality Review Act. In the event an applicant fails to pay the required fees, then the subject application shall be stayed until such payment is made.
