[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Thomaston 6-12-1989 as L.L. No. 7-1989 (Ch. 11 of the 1980 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Amended 9-12-2016 by L.L. No. 1-2016]
The Board of Trustees of the Village of Thomaston is authorized to establish and from time to time to amend, by resolution, a schedule of fees for applications, permits, approvals or any other matter in the Village of Thomaston.
The Board of Trustees is further authorized to adopt, and from time to time amend, by resolution, requirements for deposits to be made in relation to such applications, permits, approvals or other matters. Such deposits shall be used to reimburse the Village’s expenses for engineering, environmental, planning, and other professional services reasonably required for review of the application (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), the costs of mailing and publishing legal notices, and stenographic expenses for public hearings. Such deposit requirements may include provision that any such deposit be replenished by the applicant from time to time upon written request from the Village Clerk in such manner as to maintain a specified balance in such fund. In the event the applicant fails to maintain any required balance, the Village shall not be obligated to process the application further until such time as the required balance is restored. Upon the conclusion of the application or review process by final determination, or by withdrawal of the application, any remaining balance in such fund after payment of all such expenses shall be refunded to the applicant upon written request.
