The fee for each resort liquor license shall be set forth in the annual budget resolution but shall not be less than $500 nor more than $3,000, payable in advance.

If a license is issued at any time other than October 15, the fee shall be prorated on a 1/12 basis.
The general control and regulatory provisions of this chapter shall apply to resort liquor licenses, except as otherwise provided.
