The fee to issue or to renew a tobacco retailer’s permit shall be established from time to time by resolution of the city council. The fee shall be calculated so as to recover the cost of administration and enforcement of this article, including, for example, issuing a permit, administering the permitting program, retailer education, retailer inspection and compliance checks, documentation of violations, and prosecution of violators, but shall not exceed the cost of the regulatory program authorized by this article. All fees and interest upon proceeds of fees shall be used exclusively to fund the program. Fees are nonrefundable except as may be required by law.
