As a condition precedent to submitting any application for a franchise or franchise renewal, the franchisee shall pay to the county such application fees or fee deposits as are adopted or approved by the Board of Supervisors to cover reasonable costs of processing said application. The cost of the application process, in excess of any fee deposit, may be billed to the applicant, the payment of which may be made a condition of application approval.
In applying to transfer from a previously awarded franchise to a franchise under this chapter, an applicant shall not be entitled to a refund for any fees previously paid in connection with the issuance of the prior franchise. (Ord. 788, eff. 6/24/92)
