21.14: PERMIT FEES AND DEPOSITS:
   A.   Permit Fees: Building permit fees and deposits shall be paid to the Village as set forth in schedule S21 of this Code. No permit issued for constructing, erecting, enlarging, remodeling, altering, repairing, raising, lowering, underpinning, moving, or wrecking buildings, structures or portions thereof, and no permit for which a fee is prescribed by this Code shall be in force until the fees and deposits prescribed therefor shall have been paid to the Village and receipt thereof shall have been marked on such permit.
   B.   Plan Review Deposits: In furtherance of chapter 11 of this Code, a plan review deposit shall be paid upon submission of building construction drawings or engineering plans, in the amounts as set forth in schedule S21 of this Code (hereinafter the "plan review deposit"). The plan review deposit shall be paid prior to a review by the Village or its consultants, including, but not limited to, architects, engineers, land planners, foresters, attorneys and any other consultants the Village determines are necessary for the Village's review (hereinafter collectively the "consultants") and before the issuance of a building, site development or stormwater management permit. If a permit is issued after the plan review, the amount of the permit will be as set forth in schedule S21 of this Code, together with the actual fees charged to the Village by its consultants to review the plans associated with the permit. If the plan review deposit is not sufficient to cover the costs of the plan review by the consultants hired by the Village, the applicant shall pay the outstanding amount prior to the issuance of a building permit.
   In the event that a building, site development or stormwater management permit is not issued after a plan review, in addition to the Village administration fee as set forth in schedule S21 of this Code and the actual consultants' costs incurred by the Village in regard to reviewing, inspecting and processing the application and submittals, an administrative processing fee of ten percent (10%) of the consultants' costs shall be retained by the Village for processing the application and return of any remaining balance of the plan review deposit.
   If the plan review deposit is not sufficient to cover the costs of the consultants hired by the Village and the Village, the Village administration fee and the administrative processing fee, and a building permit is not subsequently issued, the applicant will be billed for the additional expense, pursuant to the cost recovery provisions of chapter 11 of this Code.
   C.   Administration Fees: Administration fees, as provided in schedule S21 of this Code, shall be paid upon submission of building construction drawings or engineering plans to the Village, and shall not be refundable.

      (1)   Timing Of Payment; Credits: Such construction deposit shall be in addition to all other application and processing fees, costs, escrows, bonds and performance securities required by this Code. At the time of issuance of the permit, if the applicant has paid all plan review costs incurred by the Village relative to consultants used by the Village resulting from the permit application, any remaining amount in the plan review deposit for the application shall be transferred and credited toward the construction deposit required for the permit to be issued.
      (2)   Application Of Construction Deposit: The construction deposit shall be held by the Village and shall be applied as provided in this subsection D.
      (3)   Village Right To Draw On Construction Deposit: The Village shall have the right at all times, at its option, to draw on the construction deposit to cover the costs to repair public property damaged by contractors as well as other costs, including, without limitation, legal fees and administrative expenses, incurred or estimated to be incurred by the Village in exercising any of its rights under this Code in the event that: a) the applicant undertakes any work in violation of any provision of this Code or of any permit issued or plan approved pursuant to this Code, or b) the applicant fails or refuses to complete any work authorized by any permit issued under this Code in accordance with all plans approved in connection with said permit. The Village's determination of such costs shall be based on costs actually incurred by the Village as well as the Village's reasonable estimates of costs to be incurred to cause the property in question to come into compliance with this Code.
      (4)   Replenishment Of Construction Deposit: If the Village draws on the construction deposit, then the applicant shall replenish the construction deposit to the full amount required by this subsection D within fifteen (15) days after demand is made to the applicant to do so, in writing, by the Village.

      (5)   Return Of Unused Construction Deposit: The Village shall return any unused portion of the construction deposit to the applicant, without interest, according to the following schedule:
         (a)   If the permit authorizes only demolition work, and no construction work is scheduled to take place within sixty (60) days after completion of demolition, then the Village shall return the construction deposit within forty five (45) days after final inspection of the restoration of the subject property and approval of the work by the Directors of Community Development and Public Works.

         (a)   If the Village makes contact with said applicant and/or property owner, the applicant/property owner shall have the option to allow an agent of the Village to inspect the work covered by the construction permit.
