CITY OF MELBOURNE, FLORIDA MINUTES – REGULAR MEETING BEFORE CITY COUNCIL JANUARY 27, 2009

Pineapple House as examples. Mrs. Dittmer agreed that some projects are more intensive and complex.

Following up, Mrs. Corby asked if we have a routine cost breakdown per applicant. She’d like to determine what is considered non-routine and the staff costs associated with that. Attorney Gougelman reported that an hourly charge for the City Attorney’s Office time for documents required from complex developments is included in the (fee resolution). Once a project exceeds certain minimums, they start accruing $150/hour in attorney time. Additionally, the remainder of the fees is based on certain averages computed by staff over the years based on handling these applications. Under the law, the City may not profit in any way from a development application, but we do have the ability to provide for cost recovery.

Mr. Ralls reported that the City hired Frazier Engineering to conduct ground borings around Mr. Coladonato’s home. It was determined that the problem is based on the type of soil and the compaction – or lack of compaction – of the house foundation. The City did not cause the foundation problem when the street was paved.

Mr. Fitzgerald concluded by saying it’s wrong that the City Code allows the property owner of a rental property to be charged for a tenant’s water bill.
