Sec. 32-39. Purpose.

(a) The village board is hereby empowered to impose by its rules and procedures such additional fees and charges payable to the village, necessary to defray the costs and expenses of conducting any public hearing or matter over which the planning and zoning board or the village board has jurisdiction.

(b) Each additional fee shall be payable to the order of the village to be deposited to the credit of the general corporation fund of the village.

(Ord. No. 2012-93, II, 12-17-2012)

Sec. 32-40. Cost recovery fee.

(a) Every petition filed and processed pursuant to this Code and/or the zoning ordinance that requires the village to incur third party costs or expenses, including without limitation legal fees incurred by the office of the village attorney or any attorney or firm retained by the village, shall be subject to the cost recovery fee and lien provisions set forth in this section. The cost recovery fee shall be in addition to any and all other filing fees and other charges established pursuant to this Code and/or the zoning ordinance. For purposes of this section, the word "petition" shall be deemed to include and refer to any and all petitions and applications filed or processed with the village board.

(b) The owner of the property that is the subject of the petition and, if different, the petitioner, shall be jointly and severally liable for the payment of the cost recovery fee, and for the cost recovery lien. By signing the petition, the owner or petitioner shall be deemed to have agreed to pay, and to have consented to, the cost recovery fee, plus any costs of collection, that have not been paid within 30 days following the mailing of a written demand for payment to the owner or petitioner at the address set forth on the petition, including any additional cost recovery fees assessed herein. Any lien filed pursuant to this section may be foreclosed in the manner provided for mortgages or mechanics' liens under state law.

(c) For purposes of calculating the cost recovery fee, the costs incurred by the village with respect to the following items shall be deemed to be the "actual costs" incurred by the village in processing a petition:

Sec. 32-41. Establishment of escrow account.

For each petition filed and processed pursuant to this Code and/or the zoning ordinance that requires the village to incur third party costs or expenses, an application fee escrow account shall be established as provided below:

(1) Initial deposit. Every petition filed that requires the village to incur third party costs or expenses shall be accompanied by an initial deposit for purposes of paying additional application fees. The amount of the initial deposit shall be determined by the zoning administrator or designee, and the initial deposit and any subsequent deposit shall be placed in an application fee escrow account. No interest shall be payable on any such escrow account.

(2) Draws from escrow. From the date of filing of any petition, the village shall maintain an accurate record of the actual costs of processing and reviewing the petition. The village shall, from time to time, draw funds from the escrow account established to pay costs identified in section 18-41 and shall transfer funds to the appropriate village accounts. The village shall maintain an accurate record of all draws.

(3) Additional deposits. Should the village at any time determine that the escrow account established in connection with any petition is, or is likely to become, insufficient to pay the actual costs of processing a petition, the village shall inform the applicant of that fact in writing and demand an additional deposit in an amount deemed to be sufficient to cover foreseeable additional costs. Unless and until such additional amount is deposited by the applicant, the village may direct that processing of the petition be suspended or terminated. Any termination shall be deemed a withdrawal of the petition by the applicant.

(4) Final settlement. As soon as reasonably feasible following final action on a petition, the village shall cause a final accounting to be made of the escrow deposits made in connection with the petition and the actual costs of processing the petition and shall make a final charge of costs against the escrow deposit. A copy of the accounting shall be provided to the applicant. If the amount in the escrow is insufficient to pay the total actual costs, a written demand for payment of the balance due shall be mailed to the applicant. If any unused balance remains in the escrow account after paying the total actual costs, that amount shall be returned to the applicant.

(5) Waiver for specified public and charitable bodies. Certain cost recovery fees may be waived pursuant to section 18-72.

(6) Condition of all petitioners, approvals, and permits. No petition filed pursuant to this Code and/or the zoning ordinance shall be considered complete unless and until all fees due have been paid. Every approval granted and every permit issued pursuant to this Code and/or the zoning ordinance shall, whether or not expressly so conditioned, be deemed to be conditioned upon payment of cost recovery fees.

(7) Time periods. Where this Code and/or the zoning ordinance provides that the passage of time without decision or action shall be deemed an approval or recommendation for approval, all time periods shall be tolled during any period of nonpayment, but shall otherwise continue to run.

(8) Failure to pay. The failure to fully pay cost recovery fees when due shall be grounds for refusing to process an application and for denying or revoking any permit or approval sought or issued with respect to the land or development to which the unpaid fee relates.
