A. Any person responsible who disputes the amount of the fee, or disputes any determination made by or on behalf of the City pursuant to and by the authority of this chapter may petition the Council for a hearing on a revision or modification of such fee or determination. Such petitions may be filed only once in connection with any fee for determination, except upon the showing of changed circumstances sufficient to justify the filing of an additional petition.

B. Such petitions, including all facts and figures, shall be submitted in writing and filed with the City Recorder at least 14 days prior to a hearing scheduled by the Council. The petitioner shall have the burden of proof.

C. Within 30 days of filing of the petition, the Council shall make findings of fact based on all relevant information, shall make a determination based upon such findings and, if appropriate, modify such fee or determination accordingly. Such determination by the Council shall be considered a final order.
