New fees at Torrance–Are they legal?

I rent a hangar from the City of Torrance at their airport. On May 13 of this year, the City Council voted to charge $50-$500 for inspections by the Fire Department. The money derived will go into the general fund. Prior to May 13, 2003, the Hangar Fire Department Inspection, (required by our Hangar Leases), was provided by the Torrance Fire Department without charge.
