Whenever any fees are required to be paid under this Code for any license or permit to be issued by the Town Clerk or by any board, commission, agency, department or committee of the Town and are not otherwise prescribed by federal or state law, the amount thereof shall be set by vote of the Board of Selectmen.
Any such fee shall be set by the Selectmen, however, only after consultation with the board, commission, agency, department or committee involved. The fees subject to this Chapter 2 shall be reviewed annually by the Board of Selectmen on or before July 1 of each year.
