Master Fee Schedule

The Master Fee Schedule details fees for services that are provided to our residents and customers.

While the primary mission of government is to satisfy community needs, many City services solely benefit specific individuals or businesses.  It is the City’s policy that the public at large should not subsidize activities of private interest through general tax revenues.  The City has therefore established user fees to ensure that those who use proprietary services pay for those services in proportion to the benefit received.  Fees that do not recover the full cost of providing the service result in a General Fund subsidy which shifts funds away from other critical and high priority programs that may not have similar cost recovery options.

The Master Fee Schedule is provided via the City’s website for the public’s ease of reference and is current as of October 2014.  Please contact the appropriate City department, as noted on each Fee Schedule bulletin, to confirm current rates.

Citywide Cost Recovery Policy

In June 2010, the City Council adopted a Citywide Cost Recovery Policy.  This policy provides guidelines for setting fees given the full cost of service.  The adopted Cost Recovery Policy includes provisions for ongoing review, a process for establishing cost recovery levels and target cost recovery levels for each program offered by the City.
