Cost Recovery Through User Fees

The Citizen's Budget Committee has recommended some guiding principles on Provo City's user fees. Providing quality services and public facilities to Provo residents and businesses is costly. The purpose of user fees and charges is to recover those costs at a level that assures the continued quality and sustainability of services and facilities.

The Committee is recommending a cost recovery philosophy for reviewing user fees and basing fees on the benefit of the services to the community. What is considered a "benefit" and the importance of it are part of the items to be considered.

Council Members are now reviewing the information presented and will discuss it at the March 3 Work Session. We are inviting your input as we move forward. Please read the following items for a better understanding of the philosophy and the recommendations:
