SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND OF SUBJECT MATTER:
Annually departments analyze their various fees to determine if they are still meeting the goals of each one. Departmental staff members recommend changing the following fees for 2024.

* The Clerk is recommending a new "Open Container/Private Event fee of $25 for each event.
* The Block Party fee is lower than many of the Town's neighboring municipalities.
* The Police Department is reorganizing their fees to align better with requests.
* The Building Division fees have not changed for several years.

These fees reflect the Town's cost of providing service. They do not generate significant revenue. For example, the Reinspection fees will generate approximately $15,000 in 2023. This is more than 2022 collections, primarily due to the number of roofing inspections.
