Permit fees as set from time to time by resolution of the Board of Trustees shall be paid upon the issuance of required permits. The current fee schedule is on file in the Village offices. No permit fee hereunder shall be so applied as to cause an undue burden upon interstate commerce. If any permittee or applicant shall claim that the fees required or paid place an undue burden upon interstate commerce, he may apply to the Mayor for an adjustment of the fees that it will not be discriminatory, unreasonable or unfair to such commerce. The Mayor shall then conduct an investigation and shall make findings of fact from which he shall determine whether the fee fixed by this article is unfair, unreasonable or discriminatory as to the applicant's business and shall fix for the applicant as a permit fee an amount that is fair, reasonable and nondiscriminatory or, if the fee has been paid, shall order a refund of the amount over and above the amount fixed. The fee may be fixed upon a percentage of gross sales or any other calculations which will assure that the fee assessed will be uniform with that assessed upon businesses of a like nature, so long as the amount assessed does not exceed the fees prescribed in this article. For this purpose, the Mayor may require the applicant to furnish him with such sworn statements as to the gross sales of his business as will provide the basis for reaching a conclusion as to the merits of the applicant's claim.
