Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution extends the end date of the Streatery program from October 25, 2020 to the last day of the current street vending season on April 14, 2021. Adopted RES-20-00439 (File 60695) allowed restaurants and taverns to expand outdoor service areas and Adopted RES-20-00337 (File 60117) waived all street vending license fees for the duration of the current vending season. As stated in RES-20-00439, there will be minor negative fiscal implications from the waiver of application fees associated with zoning, temporary liquor license expansions, and street occupancy permit applications ($50, $25, and approximately $200 per application, respectively). Any remaining fiscal impact would come from the monthly fee associated with taking over a parking area through a street occupancy permit, if a café expands into the roadway.
