      No later than May 15 of each year, the Controller shall file a report with the Board of Supervisors (i) reporting the new fee schedule, and (ii) identifying any fees that produce revenue which is significantly more than the costs of providing the services for which each fee is assessed and describing how such revenue is used by the Department or the City.
   (b)   Through and until fiscal year 2017-18, all golf fees for San Francisco residents, juniors, seniors may be increased annually by the CPI, or up to $1.00, upon approval of the Recreation and Park Commission; and all golf fees for non-S.F. residents and tournaments may be increased by two times (2X) the CPI, or up to $1.00, whichever is greater, upon approval of the Recreation and Park Commission. Beginning with fiscal year 2018-19, all fees or charges specifically listed in Sections 12.12 through 12.12.6 will be adjusted pursuant to subsection (a) based on the rates most recently approved by the Board of Supervisors or most recently adjusted under this Section 12.20, as applicable.
