[Ord. No. 08.12 §1, 6-5-2008]
Any person who pays a fee, tax or license charge authorized by an ordinance of the City may protest all or any part of any fee, tax or license charge paid by filing a protest as set forth in this Section. If no other procedure is established by law for protesting the fee, tax or license charge, then a person desiring to pay any fee, tax or license charge under protest shall, at the time of paying such fee, tax or license or within seven (7) days thereafter, file with the City Treasurer a written statement setting forth the grounds on which the protest is based. The statement shall include the true value of the money in dispute which is claimed by the person paying such fee, tax or license charge.
The City Treasurer shall impound, in a separate fund, all or part of such fee, tax or license charge which is in dispute. Within thirty (30) days after the filing of the protest, an administrative hearing officer appointed by the City Administrator shall hold an administrative hearing on the protest.
The administrative hearing officer shall first hear from the person filing the protest and then hear from the representatives of the City. The rules of evidence shall not apply in this hearing. The hearing shall be conducted in an informal manner. The hearing officer shall provide both parties the opportunity to present evidence and arguments and to rebut and comment on the evidence and arguments produced by any other party.
Upon the closing of the hearing, the administrative hearing officer shall within thirty (30) days in writing issue findings of fact, conclusions of law and an order upon the validity of the protest. If the protest is ruled valid, the City shall follow the order of the hearing officer as set forth in Subsection (F) below. If the protest is ruled invalid, then any person protesting the payment of the fee, tax or license charge may, within thirty (30) days after filing such ruling, commence an action against the City Treasurer by filing a petition for review and for recovery of the amount protested in the Circuit Court of the County.
If any person so protesting the fee, tax or license charge shall fail to commence an action in the Circuit Court for the recovery of the fee or license charge so protested within the time prescribed in Subsection (D) above, then such protest shall become null and void and of no effect, and the City Treasurer shall then disburse to the proper official the fee, tax or license charge impounded as authorized by the laws of the City.
If a final decision is rendered holding that the fee, tax or license charge is invalid, then the City Treasurer shall refund to the person who protested the fee, tax or license charge the amount of the charge which was found to be invalid, plus interest at the legal rate of interest on the sum from the time it was paid to the City.
