Engineering Fees
 
Plan Review Fee
 
1.   The applicant shall be required to pay into an escrow a sum equal to the established fee before any further action may be taken by the Borough in review of the plan. Failure to pay such sum into escrow in a timely fashion shall result in disapproval of the plan and any fees due for work associated with the first review letter shall remain due and payable.
2.   Such escrow shall be used for the reasonable and necessary charges incurred by the Borough for review of the plan by the appropriate professional consultants, including the Borough Engineer. Such charges shall be reasonable and in accordance with the ordinary and customary charges to the Borough for such services and may not be based on hourly rates in excess of those charged by the Borough Engineer and his or her staff as set forth in the retainer agreement between the Borough and the Borough Engineer, for services for which reimbursement from applicants is sought.
3.   The Borough shall deduct from the escrow each month the current and/or outstanding charges for plan review by the Borough Engineer and staff, and shall send a statement each month to the developer setting forth the amount of such deduction and the services for which such deductions were made. Any dispute over the amount of such review fees shall be resolved according to procedures set forth in 53 P.S. 10503(1), or its successor.
4.   If, after completion of a portion of the plan review, the Engineer determines that the cost of review is likely to exceed the original escrow amount, then the Engineer shall calculate such amount and shall notify the Borough applicant directly in writing and the applicant shall, within 7 days of receipt of the Engineer's letter, supplement the escrow in the additional amount determined by the Engineer. Failure of the applicant to do so shall result in the disapproval of the plan. If, after review of the plan is completed, any funds remain in the plan review escrow, such funds shall be returned to the applicant only if the plan is disapproved. If the plan is approved, such funds shall be credited to the engineering inspection fee escrow described below.
 
 
Engineering Inspection Fee
 
1.   The applicant shall, by date not less than 5 days before the first Council meeting at which the applicant's plan is considered by Council, pay into escrow a sum determined by the Borough Engineer to represent the reasonable estimated cost of the following:
   A.   Inspection of the site layout by the Borough Engineer or by an appropriate member of the Borough Engineer's staff.
   B.   Inspection by the Borough Engineer or by an appropriate member of the Borough Engineer's staff of improvements, infrastructure and structures, during and after construction.
   C.   Final inspection by the Borough Engineer or by an appropriate member of the Borough Engineer's staff upon completion of installation of required improvements, infrastructures and structures.
   D.   Other engineering verifications, inspections and/or administrative tasks by the Borough Engineer or by an appropriate member of the Borough Engineer's staff or required by Borough ordinance or under State or Federal law, in connection with the application or development.
2.   Such estimates shall include the reasonable and necessary charges incurred by the Borough for such inspections and other required tasks by the appropriate professional consultants, including the Borough Engineer. Such charges shall be reasonable and in accordance with the ordinary and customary charges to the Borough for such services and may not be based on hourly rates in excess of those charged by the Borough Engineer and his or her staff as set forth in the retainer agreement between the Borough and the Borough Engineer for services for which reimbursement from applicants is not sought.
3.   The Borough shall deduct from the escrow each month the current and/or outstanding charges for inspections and other required tasks by the Borough Engineer and staff and shall send a statement each month to the developer setting forth the amount of such deduction and the services for which such deductions were made. Any dispute over the amount of such inspection fees shall be resolved according to procedures set forth in 53 P.S. 10510(g), or its successor.
4.   If after the completion of a portion of the inspections, the Borough Engineer determines that the cost of the further required inspections is likely to exceed the original escrow amount, then the Engineer shall calculate such amount and shall notify the applicant directly in writing, and the applicant shall, within 7 days of receipt of the Engineer's letter, supplement the escrow in the additional amount determined by the Engineer. Failure of the applicant to do so shall result in the issuance of a stop work order, which shall remain in effect until such payment is received by the Borough. If, after such inspections are completed, any funds remain in the engineering inspection fee escrow, such funds shall be returned to the applicant only if all of the applicant's other financial obligations to the Borough are fully discharged. If the applicant's other financial obligations to the Borough are not fully discharged, such funds shall be applied to the discharged of such obligation(s).
 
 
ZONING
Purpose: Permit and related fees are collected to cover the costs of permit applications, plan review, park and recreation improvements, the issuance of the permits, required site inspections and certificate of occupancy. Fees set forth herein are intended to cover the cost of one inspection. If additional inspections are necessary due to the applicant's failure to meet required standards, or for any other reason not attributable to the Borough, additional fees may be charged, and if charged shall reflect the Borough's actual additional cost for such inspections.
Estimated Value of Construction: "Estimated value" means the reasonable costs, as determined by the Code Enforcement Officer, of all services, labor, materials and use of equipment entering into and necessary to the prosecution and completion of the work. The following average square foot construction costs shall be used to compute the "estimated value" of construction by multiplying per square foot construction cost by the total square footage of area for the proposed use.
The fee for a zoning permit shall be $5.00 per $1,000 of construction cost, with a $50 minimum fee. Construction cost shall be determined by the most recent National Building Valuation Data Report as published by International Code Council.
