TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND MEMBERS OF THE CITY COUNCIL
FROM: DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS
DATE: OCTOBER 21, 2003
SUBJECT: ESTABLISHING A FEE TO APPEAL A DECISION OF DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC WORKS DECISION A PERMIT FOR AN ABOVE GROUND FACILITY WITHIN THE PUBLIC RIGHT OF WAY PERMIT
Adopt Resolution of the City of Rancho Palos Verdes establishing a fee for the appeal of a decision by the Director of Public Works regarding a permit for an above ground facility within the public rights of way permit.
Earlier this evening the City Council adopted an ordinance that established procedures for the installation of aboveground utilities within the public right of way. The procedure includes a process by which an appeal can be made a decision by the Director of Public Works to issue or deny an application. The attached ordinance establishes a fee for that appeal process.
This Public Hearing is scheduled to set a fee for the city to recover its cost for activities related to an appeal.
Staff services and costs for an appeal:
The attached ordinance proposes a fee of $800. The cost of the appeal would be returned to the appellant if the City Council reverses the director’s decision. The adopted regulations allow for an appeal by a member of the City Council in which case there would be no fee.
Adopting the staff recommendations will adopt an ordinance to set a fee for the appeal of a decision of the Director of Public Works with respect to applications for above ground facilities within the public right of way. The amount set for the fee will simply allow the City to recover its expenses for the appeal process.
Staff could identify no fiscal impacts.
