An engineering review fee shall be paid by any applicant or his agent whenever the services of the Village Engineer are required to review sketches, plats or plans submitted to any board of the village, the Department of Public Works or the Building Inspector. Such fee shall apply to all types of building and development and to all districts and to all proceedings of any board of the Village mentioned in Chapter 193, Zoning, as well as such other matters as are required by any other section of the Code of the Town/Village of East Rochester relating to construction, building and development, etc., where the services of the Village Engineer are required to review sketches, plats or plans on behalf of the Village or any of its boards or departments.
The payment of such fee shall be a prerequisite before any board of the Village or its departments shall hear the applicant wherein it is required that the services of the Village Engineer are necessary to review any or all sketches, plats or plans to be submitted by said applicant. No application shall be heard or reviewed by said boards or departments of the Village nor shall the Village Engineer undertake any review of the sketches, plats or plans until the appropriate engineering review fee has been paid and collected by the Village Clerk-Treasurer.
The engineering review fees shall be as set from time to time by resolution of the Board of Trustees.
When the Village Engineer is required to review in two stages (preliminary and final), then the applicant or his agent shall pay 1/2 of the engineering review fee upon submission for preliminary review of such sketches, plats or plans and 1/2 of the fee upon submission for final review.
When the sketches, plats or plans are able to be reviewed as a one-stage review by the Village Engineer, then the required fee shall be paid in full, as heretofore directed, before any board, department or officer of the Village shall grant final approval for building permits.
