Notwithstanding any other provision of this Code to the contrary, if the amount of any additional deposit as may be required by resolution of the City Council in conjunction with any application or appeal is not received by the City within fifteen (15) working days after the invoice due date, all development project processing and/or appeal activities will be terminated until payment is received. In the event the project applicant fails to make the necessary additional deposit prior to the scheduled public hearing upon such application or appeal, the Planning Director, or his or her designee, shall report to the City Council (or the hearing officer or other body hearing such application or appeal) that the project applicant has failed to timely make the additional deposit required by such resolution. At the time set for the public hearing, and notwithstanding any other provision of this Code to the contrary, the City Council shall either (i) find that the project applicant has failed to make the required additional deposit and deny the development project for such reason, or (ii) determine that the City Council then currently has sufficient information to act upon the application or appeal, and proceed with the public hearing and consideration of the application or appeal, or (iii) continue the hearing (within permissible legal time limits) to allow the project applicant additional time to make the additional deposit.
