Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: The Common Council adopted ORD-11-00171 on December 13, 2011, which made multiple changes to the City’s secondhand dealers’ ordinance. This proposal creates cross references to clarify that consignment transactions are secondhand sales, as provided in the existing definition of “Reportable Transactions.” It states that recordkeeping for precious metals is the same as for jewelry and other articles. The proposal clarifies that a holder of a secondhand license issued by the City of Madison may occasionally operate from a temporary location, but that all recordkeeping and other ordinance requirements apply to such an operation. The proposal creates a definition of “precious metal” using language formerly contained in the definition of “precious metal dealer.”
