The Board of Trustees may, from time to time, establish and amend a schedule of fees and deposits for zoning applications to the Village, the Village Clerk, and the Village's boards, departments, committees, and commissions as such Board may deem appropriate.

Payments made other than by cash, bank check, or certified check shall be accepted subject to collection, and the processing of the application for which such other checks have been made may be stayed pending collection. In the event that any check is not honored for whatever reason, any fees or other charges caused to the Village by virtue of such dishonor shall be reimbursed to the Village as an additional application fee, and all future payments by such applicant shall be accepted only if made by cash, bank check, or certified check.
