2 - A deposit will be collected at the time the application fee is accepted. The Public Works Department shall keep records of the time and expenses incurred in the processing of these applications and charge Developer on a time and material basis. These monies will be deposited in a special account, from which the County will draw sums to cover the costs of the application review. The Public Works Department shall provide to the developer a monthly invoice detailing the work performed and the time spent by its staff or outside consultants on such work, together with the hourly rates charged by individuals performing the work. The invoice amount shall not exceed the actual cost to the Public Works Department to provide the work described. The County may withdraw funds from the funds deposits in the special account in the amount of each invoice. In the event that it appears likely the deposit made by developer will be exhausted, the Public Works Department shall provide the developer with a new estimate of the cost to complete the processing of the application. The developer shall replenish the special account in the amount of such new estimate within fifteen (15) days. Developer's failure to make payment shall be deemed a withdrawal or abandonment of the application, but such withdrawal or abandonment shall not relieve the developer of the obligation to pay for work done by County in response to the application or to wind up work as a result of withdrawal or abandonment 

3- County Engineer's hourly rate 

4- This is an estimate of the hourly rate charged. Actual rate may vary depending on classification of the employee performing the service.
