A. Easement Amendment Costs. The Foundation shall assess and the farm owner shall agree to pay the costs of amending an agricultural land preservation easement approved for purchase by the Board of Public Works prior to June 30, 2014 in a manner that permits the uses allowed by this chapter. The costs shall be determined on a case-by-case basis.

B. Monitoring and Enforcement Fees. If the Foundation approves an ARES for a farm, the Foundation shall assess the farm owner an annual fee to reimburse the Foundation for monitoring and enforcement costs associated with the uses provided by this chapter. This fee is payable to the Foundation on January 1st of each year following the approval of the ARES, and may be modified from time to time. The fee shall continue to be assessed each year until the facility agreement is terminated, the ARES is dismantled and the land reclaimed for agricultural use, as determined by the Foundation.
