City schedules workshops for public input on user fee update
Posted on 11/14/2016

The City of Redlands will hold two public workshops to provide information and seek public input prior to the City Council’s review of updated user fees and service charges associated with the cost of providing various fee-related services.

In 2012 the City Council approved a resolution establishing fees and service charges following a detailed study by an outside consultant to determine the true cost of providing various fee-related services. The council also provided for adjustments to the fees based on annual changes to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) to keep pace with inflation in the absence of a new study. A separate study of Building and Safety User fees also recommends adjustments based on the costs of providing service. A copy of the study is available on the City’s website here or at the City Clerk’s Office.

The following two public workshops have been scheduled:

  • Nov. 29, 10 a.m. to noon, at the East Valley Association of Realtors, 820 W. Colton Ave., Redlands
  • Dec. 7, 10 a.m. to noon, at the City Council Chambers, 35 Cajon St., Redlands

Following the workshops the user fee adjustments will return to the City Council for further discussion and possible action.

For information on the public workshops contact James Troyer, Interim Development Services Director, at (909) 798-7598 or by email at jtroyer@cityofredlands.org.
