Town Council shall have the following remedies, which may be exercised individually or collectively, for collecting development impact fees. The failure to pursue any remedy at any time shall not be deemed as a waiver of town rights to pursue any remedy at such other time as may be deemed appropriate.
(A) Interest and penalties. The town may, at its discretion, add to the amount of calculated development impact fees due prior to award of a certificate of occupancy, reasonable interest and penalties for non-payment or late payment of required funds. Penalties for unpaid development impact fees shall be administered consistent with Chapter 10 (General Provisions), § 10.99 in the Town of Mount Pleasant Code of Ordinances, which declares the violation a penalty subject to a fine not to exceed $500 or imprisonment not to exceed 30 days. Each day of violation shall be deemed a separate offense.
(B) Withholding certificate of occupancy. The town may withhold a certificate of occupancy until full and complete payment has been made by the developer of development impact fees due for the development.
(C) Lien. The town may impose a lien on the developer's property for failure of the developer to pay required development impact fees in full.
(D) Other. The town may pursue the collection of the development impact fees, including interest, by way of civil process in the Court of Common Pleas for Charleston County.
