SEC. 16-535.  APPLICATION FEE.
   (A)   Fees for filing an application for a special use permit shall be set by resolution of the city council.
   (B)   Fees for submitting a project for preliminary review and evaluation by city staff before submitting a formal application shall be set by resolution of the city council.
   (C)   When an application for any project, including but not limited to a special use permit, a planned development permit, a variance, a map, a zone boundary change or a change of classification or zone uses, requires special evaluation by a consultant or legal counsel or an unusual amount of special study and evaluation by city staff beyond routine analysis, the applicant shall reimburse the city for the cost of such work.  The director shall give the applicant a written estimate of such cost, and the applicant shall deposit the amount of such estimate with the director, before any such work is done.  If, after work is begun, the director estimates that more costs will be incurred than originally estimated, the director shall give the applicant a revised written estimate and the applicant shall deposit the amount of the revised estimate with the director, deducting deposits previously made.  If the final actual cost of the work exceeds the amount so deposited, the applicant shall deposit the remaining costs before the city takes action on the application.  If the actual final cost of the work is less than the amount so deposited, the director shall refund the excess deposit after the city takes action on the application or the application is withdrawn.
