§ 33J-15. Fire impact fee and periodic review.  

Latest version.
  • (a)

    The impact fee manual shall be used for the administration of this chapter. The impact fee manual shall contain the following:


    The procedure for the designation by the County of municipal staff to administer any part of the impact fee process or procedure pertaining to municipalities participating in the District. Such designation procedure shall be implemented through memoranda of agreement between the County and these municipalities. The impact fee manual shall further detail the specific procedure for entering into such memoranda of agreement.


    The methodology for independent fee calculation provided by Section 33J-10.


    The independent study administrative fee provided for in Section 33J-10(c).


    The standards and procedures for issuance of credits as set forth in Section 33J-9.


    The standards, procedures and other matters required to administer Sections 33J-4 through 33J-16.


    The County Mayor shall review the contents of this chapter and impact fee manual annually and, if appropriate, make recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners for revisions to the chapter and impact fee manual. The purpose of this review is to ensure that the benefits to a fee-paying development are equitable in that the fee charged to the paying development shall not exceed a proportionate fair share of the costs of mitigating fire and emergency medical service impacts of new developments, and that the procedures for administering the impact fee remain efficient.


    A financial and management report outlining expenditures and unexpended funds within each impact fee benefit zone shall be prepared annually by the County Fire Director and submitted to the County Mayor within 120 days from the date of the end of the fiscal year. Within 30 days of receipt, the County Mayor or Mayor's designee shall place the report on an agenda for review by the Board of County Commissioners.


    The County Mayor or Mayor's designee shall prepare a quarterly report providing information regarding impact fee collections within each commission district and place the quarterly report on an agenda for review by the Board of County Commissioners.
