   (d)   Notices.
      (1)   Additional notice fees. For applications listed in this section that require public notice, the listed fee has been calculated to include 100 mailed notifications per hearing to adjacent property owners and $25 for notices published in the official newspaper of the city, based upon the minimum number of hearings required by the code and state law. When the actual number of hearing notices published exceeds the minimum number required under the code, and/or when the number of mailed notices exceeds 100 for any given public hearing, the applicant must pay additional fees to cover the cost of the additional mailed notices and publications as follows:
         (A)   One dollar and fifty cents per mailed notice in excess of 100 notices for any public hearing;
         (B)   One dollar and fifty cents per mailed notice for all mailed notices for public hearings which are in excess of the minimum number of hearings required under the code; and
         (C)   Twenty-five dollars per published notice for public hearings in excess of the minimum number of hearings required under the Code.
         The Planning Commission or City Council may continue or deny approval of applications where outstanding fees have not been paid.
      (2)   Failure of notification. A failure of any property owner to receive notice or failure to give mailed notice to individual property owners or defects in the notice shall not invalidate the proceedings provided a bona fide attempt has been made to comply with notice requirements.
      (3)   Notification of tenant. In the event that the subject of the hearing is a property leased or rented to one or more tenants, the property owner/applicant must notify each tenant of the hearing.
   (e)   Amended applications.
