Subject:          Annual License Fee Adjustment Public Hearing


The Economic Development and Regulatory Services Committee of the Minneapolis City Council will consider adjusting fees listed on the License Fee Schedule.  Staff is recommending the following changes for 2019:


·         An inflationary adjustment to account for growth in expenses since the last time Pollution Control Annual Registration (PCAR) fees were set in 2012;

·         An adjustment to the structure and rate of licensure for rental housing;

·         And, a single year inflationary adjustment for all other fees on the License Fee Schedule.


In addition, staff recommends that all fees be rounded to the nearest $5 increment after accounting for the above changes.


A copy of the proposed fees will be available by July 10, 2018 on our website at
