Upon request by the applicant, the council, in its discretion, may waive in whole or part the fees that would otherwise be collected from the applicant for issuance of a permit under any code specified in this Chapter 8, provided the council makes all of the following findings by resolution:
a. 
The applicant is a not-for-profit organization qualified for tax-exempt status under Federal and State law;
b. 
The applicant will use the subject building, structure or facility solely to provide services or products that will be of exceptional and significant direct benefit to the health, welfare and/or safety of the city's residents, plus related incidental uses; and
c. 
Payment of the permit fees would substantially impair the applicant in providing such services or products or would otherwise impose an undue financial hardship on the applicant.
