(a) A charge shall be imposed for all services in excess of two (2) hours of time which the Department of Public Works provides in relation to any contemplated project involving the improvement, division or development of property.

(d) Upon written notice by the person requesting the service to the Department that no further service is needed, any balance remaining in the deposit shall be returned to said person. (Ord. 1615, § 1, 9/13/1983; Ord. 2673, § 1, 5/4/2021)
