The City will be updating fees for certain services this spring so they better reflect the actual cost of providing the service. This includes fees related to development, public safety, and community services.

The City has not updated many of its fees in several years and some fees do not cover the cost of providing the service. The City Council will discuss whether fees should be set at levels that recover the full cost of providing services, or set at lower levels to achieve public policy goals, such as encouraging compliance. Setting fees at lower levels means that general tax dollars are used to provide the service.

 

Thank you to those of you who provided input through our survey. The results will be discussed at an upcoming City Council meeting.
