This will make City library facilities more inclusive and equitable by providing greater catering options for the City’s customers. This ordinance will allow catering opportunities at library facilities by minority-owned caterers who otherwise are unable to offer those services under existing practice, and is therefore in line with the City’s equity goals. The library will charge a permit fee to recover the City’s administrative costs of overseeing the catering program.
