To assure compliance with this subchapter and any conditions of approval, performance guarantees may be required. The City Manager may require that a performance guarantee be furnished to ensure compliance with the requirements and conditions imposed under the city's Zoning Ordinance. The amount of the performance guarantee shall be set forth by the City Manager, with input from Council, and shall be an amount acceptable to the city in covering the estimated cost of improvements associated with the project for which zoning approval is sought. This performance guarantee may be in the form
of a cash deposit, certified check, irrevocable bank letter of credit, or a surety bond, and shall be deposited with the treasurer of the city. The performance guarantee shall be deposited at the time of issuance of the permit authorizing the activity or project. The city shall not require the deposit of the performance guarantee before the date on which the city is prepared to issue the permit. The city shall rebate any cash deposits in reasonable proportion to the ratio of work completed on the required improvement as work on the required improvements progresses.
