​How are City Fees a​nd Charges Determined?

​The city charges a range of fees for services provided to residents and businesses. These fees are imposed as a result of public use, such as recreational services, rental uses, water utilities and other types of services.

The method for setting fees and the extent to which they recover the cost of the service provided, is​ consistent with the recommendations of the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) and National Advisory Council on State and Local Budgeting (NACSLB). Each year, during the budget process, staff reviews the fees to ensure the amount being charged matches the amount it costs for the city to deliver that service.

Of the city’s total revenue budget, 8 percent is comprised of fees charged for services provided to citizens.​​
