The city council reviews the fees every year, said City Manager Gary Milliman, and decides whether to apply a cost-of-living adjustment.

The costs haven’t increased much over the years, noted Mayor Ron Hedenskog.

“I remember in 1979 when I bought my first business license for $60,” he said. “Now it’s $62.”
