   (f)   DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING & DEVELOPMENT SERVICES BUILDING COMMITTED FUND BALANCE
      1.   PURPOSE. The County of San Diego may charge fees to cover the costs of building; provided such fees do not exceed the estimated reasonable cost of the services for which the fees are charged. The Building Reserve Designation was established by the resolution of the Board of Supervisors on June 27, 1995.  In 2009, Governmental Accounting Standards Board 54 resulted in a change in name from Reserve Designation to Committed Fund Balance. The purpose of the Building Committed Fund Balance ("Committed Fund Balance") is to stabilize the revenue base of the Building Program within the Department of Planning & Development Services.
      2.   ESTABLISHMENT OF THE RESERVE DESIGNATION COMMITTED FUND BALANCE. There is hereby established the Department of Planning & Development Services Building Committed Fund Balance into which shall be deposited all fees in excess of the actual cost required to provide services by the Department of Planning & Development Services in the Building Program. Moneys shall be deposited in and appropriated from the Committed Fund Balance in accordance with the provisions of this section.
      3.   DEPOSITS INTO THE COMMITTED FUND BALANCE. After the close of each fiscal year, the department shall determine the amount of fees collected and the actual full costs of providing services in the Building Program during the fiscal year and submit to the Office of Financial Planning for review. In the event the amount of fees collected exceeds the actual full costs, the Office of Financial Planning shall transfer such excess amount to the Committed Fund Balance.
      4.   UTILIZATION. The Committed Fund Balance shall be used only to offset costs in the Department of Planning & Development Services' Building Program. Funds in the Committed Fund Balance shall be appropriated only when it is estimated reasonably that actual full costs will exceed fees to be charged for services in the Building Program. The Chief Administrative Officer shall report to the Board of Supervisors on the need to appropriate any funds from the Committed Fund Balance prior to any appropriation by the Board of Supervisors. Building fees will be reviewed annually to ensure compliance with Board Policy B-29, "Fees, Grants, Revenue Contracts, Department Responsibility for Cost Recovery."
      5.   PUBLIC MEETINGS. All issues related to the Committed Fund Balance shall be considered by the Board of Supervisors in a regularly scheduled meeting. Notice of the time and place of the meeting shall be mailed at least fourteen (14) days prior to the meeting to any party who files a written request with the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors for such mailed notice.
   (g)   WAIVER OF SPECIFIED FEES AND DEPOSITS FOR FARM EMPLOYEE HOUSING AND FARM LABOR CAMPS
