[Adopted 12-6-2005 by Res. No. 2005-07]
Zolfo Springs shall establish a fee schedule for planning and zoning hearings and taking of hearing minutes services as follows:
All reasonable professional fees, including without limitation professional land planners, attorneys, and engineers, shall be billed directly to the applicant. The applicant shall be required to pay a deposit to ensure payment of all fees and costs expended on behalf of the applicant's project. The deposit shall be established by the Mayor based on the reasonably anticipated fees and costs for the three-month period when the most services will be expended on behalf of the applicant's project. The deposit shall be paid with the application, and failure to pay periodic invoices for such fees and costs within 30 days of mailing shall be cause for the Town to cease all work on behalf of the applicant's project and cancel any scheduled hearings in furtherance of the project.
The stated fees do not include costs for preparation of application requests or required legal advertising and notice. All costs for preparation of required forms and advertising and notice are the responsibility of the requesting entity.
