(a) Beginning with fiscal year 2008-2009, the fees and occupancy assessment costs which are established for the permit categories and uses set forth in section 2.1.1 for fiscal year 2007-2008 may be adjusted each year, without further action by the Board of Supervisors, to reflect changes in the relevant Consumer Price Index, as determined by the Controller. No later than April 15th of each year, the Director shall submit the Department’s current fees and occupancy assessment costs schedule to the Controller, who shall apply the price index adjustment to produce a new fee schedule and occupancy assessment for the following year. No later than May 15th of each year, the Controller shall file a report with the Board of Supervisors reporting the new fee schedule and occupancy assessment and certifying that: (a) the fees produce sufficient revenue to support the costs of providing the services for which the fee is charged and (b) the fees do not produce revenue that exceeds the costs of providing the services for which each permit fee is charged. Notwithstanding the procedures set forth in this Section, the Board of Supervisors, in its discretion, may modify the fees or occupancy assessment costs by ordinance at any time.
