Any and all fees, costs, or expenses imposed by the State of New York, the County of Nassau, or any agency or department thereof with respect to the filing or review of maps, plans, or data submitted to it by the Village or the applicant pursuant to the provisions of Article 12-B of the General Municipal Law, Article XVI of the County Government Law of Nassau County, or any other law, rule, or regulation, shall be the responsibility of the applicant and shall be paid by the applicant at the time such maps, plans, or data are submitted to the state, the county, or such agency or department. If, nevertheless, such a fee, cost, or expense is paid by the Village, the applicant shall reimburse the Village prior to the issuance of the permit or approval sought by the applicant from the Village, and, in the discretion of the Village, the processing of any such application may be suspended until such fee, cost, or expense is reimbursed to the Village.

All of the foregoing fees, other than those set forth in Subsection B(14) shall be doubled in the event that the construction, installation, demolition, or other activity or item or work (hereinafter, within this subsection, all together referred to as "work") requiring a permit has been commenced prior to the issuance of a permit. Upon application to the Board of Trustees, such doubling of the fee may be reduced by the Board of Trustees, upon a showing that such work was so minor that the doubling of the fees would be so substantially out of proportion to the additional work to the Department that it would amount to an unwarranted penalty, or that the performance of such work prior to the issuance of the requisite permit was reasonably necessary to save life or property.

Whenever the plans accompanying an application are for a structure which, in the opinion of the Building Inspector, is of complex design, the Building Inspector shall require the applicant to file an affidavit, signed by an architect or engineer, certifying that the plans and specifications comply with the provisions of Chapter 84, Fire Prevention and Building Construction, of the Code of the Village of Kings Point in force on the date of the application. In such case, the Building Inspector may, at his or her discretion, employ an architect or engineer to examine the plans. The amount by which the cost of such examination, not exceeding 1 1/3% of the estimated construction cost, is in excess of 1/2 of the permit fee required by § 84-28 shall be added to such permit fee and paid by the applicant before the permit shall be issued.
(18) 
There shall be no additional charge for the review of revised plans when such revisions have been made solely in response to comments by the Building Department to address missing, incorrect, or unclear information on the plans, which is or may be required and/or contrary to building, zoning, health, fire, environmental, or other pertinent regulations, or is otherwise necessary for the Building Department to properly understand and establish what is proposed by the plans, or is otherwise required by the Building Department. However, if, after two resubmissions of plans, any request for the same or additional corrections or clarifications has been made and there has not been compliance with such request, an additional permit fee equal to 10% of the original permit fee shall be paid at the time of each resubmission until after a submission with such correction or clarification is provided.
