   (d)   An inspection and maintenance agreement as described in Chapter 913.08(d)(10) is established to ensure operations and treatment in perpetuity.
   (e)   Obtain prior written approval from Ohio EPA.
   (f)   Shall pay a fee for this community off-site action in the amount of cost of the least expensive on-site stormwater management control had development or re- development activity not required an alternative action plus an amountof ten percent (10%) of that cost. The proposed fee and basis for the proposed fee shall be submitted to the City for review nad determination of reasonableness.
