While the Colorado Springs City Council decided on Tuesday night to charge only a $2,200 application fee to center owners and study the accuracy of its remaining proposed fees — look for more in Thursday's Independent — the county went ahead and finalized its own fee schedule. Weirdly enough, they're based on city amounts at the same time the city is studying its own amounts to make sure they're right.
This didn't sit so well with former City Councilor and now County Commissioner Darryl Glenn, reports Debbie Kelley at the Gazette.
What commissioners approved: $1,800, $3,000 and $4,200, respectively.
“They seemed so arbitrary,” said Glenn, who voted against the resolution. “The voters have stated they want this to be treated as a business, and with any business, there’s a rational basis for determining fees. I haven’t seen enough information to give me a conclusion I can justify yet.”
