(a) The Plaza Program shall charge an administrative fee to Stewards or permittees for Plazas. Such fee shall be based on actual costs that the Plaza Program incurs in administering and processing the action or procedure. The Plaza Program shall provide the applicant with a written estimate of said costs at the time of application, and the applicant shall pay such fees prior to the time that the application is deemed complete. To the extent that the estimated fees do not cover actual costs, any outstanding amount due shall be a condition of the City's final decision on the action or procedure. To the extent that the estimated fees exceed the actual costs, the Plaza Program shall refund the excess amount to the applicant within a reasonable period after the City's final decision on the action or procedure.
(b) The administrative fee identified in Subsection (a) shall be sufficient to recover actual costs that the Plaza Program incurs and shall be charged on a time and materials basis. The Plaza Program also may charge for any time and materials costs that other agencies, boards, commissions, or departments of the City, including the City Attorney's Office, incur in connection with the processing or administration of a particular application, action, or procedure unless such costs are fully included as part of an existing permit fee.
(c) Payment of said fee shall be a condition of any permit, license, or other approval to establish and/or operate a Plaza.
(d) Additional administrative fees may be charged for subsequent Plaza Program staff consultation with Stewards or permittees in accordance with the fee requirements specified above. Said fees shall be paid on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis, as specified in a written fee request from the Plaza Program.
