In order to maintain User Fee Cost Recovery Objectives, the City Council of the City of La Mesa adopted a User Fee Cost Recovery Policy by Resolution No. 2004-071 at a regular meeting held the 25th day of May 2004.
The City Fee Schedule is maintained through an Annual Update Process as part of the city budget process. During the year the biennial budget is adopted (odd-numbered years), fees will be updated by the percent change in each relevant department budget. During the mid-biennium budget update year (even-numbered years), the city will complete a formal update of its User Fee Study and adjust fees based on the study results.
