"These are significant changes to the schedule because some of (the fees) are too high," (Mayor) Hyatt said

Fees, if you do not require and special services of the City, are not bad. Fees cover the costs of City services that are NOT received by every citizen. So, if a fee is set at less than the cost of the service, it absorbs taxes (paid by all) to cover the difference. Thus, as an example, if I add a room to my home and the $1,000 I paid for plan check and many on-site inspections of my room addition does not cover, say the $1,500 total cost, well my thanks to you for subsidizing the $500. Now $500 doesn't sound like much, but add up all of the many subsidies that can occur and it can add up to tens of thousands of dollars of tax wastage covering the costs of people with limited benefit to all.
