Based on a year-long analysis by staff and at the council's direction, the proposal would charge residents according to the cost of the service, instead of charging a flat fee. Among those services: conditional use permits, extensions on development permits, variances, and analysis of significant projects by the Architectural and Site Review Board.
The year-long analysis of five projects and 10 fees showed that the town recovered only 40 percent of its costs, according to the report.
