Fiscal Note:
The proposed resolution authorizes Special Vending Approvals for 2020 special events. Specifically, this resolution authorizes temporary invalidation of vending licenses for licensees assigned to sites located within the special event perimeter for the duration of the special event; authorization of event sponsors to select vendors for the event and requiring that event sponsors obtain a Special Event Vending License; and suspension of rules regarding handcrafted goods and personally prepared food for the 22 events included in the attachment.

Under MGO 9.13(2)(c), Special Event Vending Licenses are issued for event vendors in the name of the event sponsor. Approval of this resolution will result in $8,800 in City revenue from Special Event Vending Licenses. Six event sponsors do not sell food or goods and, therefore, are not required to purchase a license. Other actions authorized in this resolution do not result in a fiscal impact.

In general, vendors pay an annual fee for their licenses which come with the caveat that their license may be invalidated up to 10 times per year. The invalidation of licenses due to the special events does not impact revenue.

101-300 vendors $ 975 |99|$
