§ 132-5 Reimbursement for professional consulting services.

A. 
The Board of Trustees, Planning Board and Board of Appeals in the review of any application described above, may refer any such application presented to it to such engineering, planning, legal, environmental, other technical consultant or stenographic services as such Board shall deem reasonably necessary to enable it to review such application as required by law. The charges made by such consultants shall be in accord with charges usually made for such services in the metropolitan New York region or pursuant to an existing contractual agreement between the village and such consultants. The Board of Trustees shall approve all such charges before they are incurred. All such charges shall be paid upon submission of a village voucher. The applicant shall reimburse the village for the cost of such consultant services upon submission of a copy of the voucher. Such reimbursement shall be made prior to final action on the application. In the event an application is required to be reviewed by two or more boards, then in such event and to the extent applicable, the Boards shall use the same consultants who shall in such case prepare one report providing the data, information and recommendations requested by the Boards. In all instances, duplication of consultants' reports shall be avoided wherever possible in order to minimize the cost to the applicant of such consultants' reports.
B. 
At the time of submission of a completed petition or application by an applicant for rezoning, special use permit, conditional use, subdivision approval, site plan approval, boundary adjustment or wetlands permit approval, the applicant shall establish an initial escrow account with the village for reimbursement for professional consulting services in an amount to be established by the reviewing agency. In the event that the outstanding balance in any account, once established, is less than 10% of the initial escrow amount, the applicant shall be required to replenish the account with an amount reasonably required for the village's consultants to complete the tasks assigned to them.

§ 132-6 Periodic review and amendment of fees.

The Board of Trustees may periodically review the fee schedule set forth in this chapter and may, by resolution, after public hearing for which notice shall be given 10 days prior thereto, amend the fees set forth herein.
