(a) The city manager shall establish a schedule of fees and rates for all types of services performed by city departments under the manager's control, except utility rates and charges, admissions, golf course fees and nonresident library fees, to be set forth in a document to be known as the "municipal fee schedule." Such document shall list all fees, rates and charges, except utility rates and charges, charged and collected by any department of the city and shall be available to the public for examination by request.
(b) Any change in any fee established by the city manager shall become effective upon commencement of the thirty-first day following notice sent to the council, except fees established pursuant to an emergency ordinance of the city council, or fees changed by the city council after such notice. If any fee is changed by the city council by motion action, in such case said changed fee shall be effective on the next weekday following such council action, or at such other time specified by the council.
(c) Except as provided in subsection (d) of this section, it shall be unlawful for any person to use any city facility or service without paying the prescribed fee or charge therefor.
(d) Notwithstanding subsection (c) of this section, the city council may, in its discretion, waive any of the fees set forth in the municipal fee schedule that would apply to a private project to construct, improve or otherwise enhance a new or existing public facility, building or park. A construction or capital project eligible for such fee waiver must result in a new or improved public facility, building or park, or some portion thereof, that will be solely owned or controlled, and operated, by the city upon the project's completion. In the event that only some portion of a construction or capital project will result in a new or improved city facility, building or park, or some portion thereof, then the city council may only waive those portions of any associated fees, on a pro rata basis, that directly relate to the construction, improvement or enhancement of the city facility, building or park.
(e) The finance committee may review any fee in the municipal fee schedule during the annual budget review process.
