"Capital costs" does not include other noncapital costs to construct, expand or improve public facilities, the costs of equipment to construct, expand or improve public facilities or the costs for vehicles.

[Amended 6-24-2014 by Ord. No. 747]
Any impact fee imposed under this chapter shall be reduced to compensate for capital costs otherwise imposed by the Village, upon the land development subject to this chapter, for the same public facilities for which an impact fee has been imposed under this chapter, including by way of special assessments, special charges, land dedications, or any ordinance adopted thereunder or any other items of value. Impact fees imposed under this chapter shall also be reduced to compensate for moneys received from the federal or state government specifically to provide or pay for the public facilities for which the impact fees under this chapter are imposed.
The lawful new construction of a single-family dwelling structure upon a nondivisible parcel of land supporting or having supported a habitable single-family dwelling structure razed or to be razed within one year of the date of the issuance of a building permit for the new construction as part of the new construction project shall be exempt from the fees imposed under this chapter. Any new construction of a single-family dwelling structure upon a single parcel of land involving the demolition of a preexisting residential structure upon such single parcel of land, which project is similar to but not exactly as described above to be exempt, may be found to be exempt upon application to the Village Board and a finding by the Village Board that such project does not bear a rational relationship to the need for new, expanded or improved public facilities required to serve such development. Such application shall be made to the Village Board prior to the payment of any fees under this chapter.
All fees collected and special accounts maintained under this chapter shall be subject to administration by the Village Treasurer. The Treasurer shall report annually to the Village Board with regard to all deposits, withdrawals and fund balances in these accounts. The purpose of the annual report is to provide the Village Board with information necessary to determine that all funds collected are spent within the time required for the purpose intended and that the amount of fees imposed continues to represent an equitable and reasonable apportionment of the cost of public improvements and requirements generated by land development. Upon such considerations and for such purposes, the Village Board may make reasonable adjustments to the amount of such fees and determine whether there exists any reasonable need for refund of fees previously collected. The impact fees imposed under this chapter shall be increased annually at a rate equal to the percentage change in the Engineering News Record Construction Cost Index for the previous 12 months, with the adjustment effective January 1 of each year. The Village Treasurer or designee shall calculate the adjusted fees and maintain a copy of the calculation and the adjusted impact fees in the office of the Village Clerk. The revenue and expenditure totals for each impact fee must also be included in the Village's annual budget, and a summary of the revenue and expenditure totals for each impact fee must also be made available in the Village's annual budget summary required under § 65.90(3)(a), Wis. Stats.
Any developer upon whom an impact fee is imposed under this chapter shall have the right to contest the amount, collection or use of the impact fee to the Village Board, provided that the developer files a written notice of appeal in the Village Clerk's office within 15 days of the developer's filing of an application for a building permit upon which the impact fee is imposed. Such notice of appeal shall be entitled "Notice of Appeal of Impact Fee" and shall state the developer's name, address, telephone number, address (if available) and legal description of the land development upon which the impact fee is imposed, and a statement of the nature of and reasons for the appeal. The Village Clerk shall schedule the appeal for consideration by the Village Board at a regular meeting as soon as reasonably practicable under the circumstances and shall notify the developer of the time, date and place of such meeting, in writing, by regular mail, deposited in the mail no later than at least three days before the date of such meeting. Upon review of such appeal, the Village Board may adjust the amount, collection or use of the impact fee upon just and reasonable cause shown.
