Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes the waiver of street vending fees for the 2021-2022 season. This is an extension of adopted RES-20-00333 (File 60117) and RES-20-00585 (File 61272), both of which waived and refunded street vending fees for the 2020-2021 season. The fee waiver will likely have the same revenue loss as estimated for 2020 at $232,000. The estimated loss assumes no fee collection for basic street vending, food vending, late night vending, campus vending, mall vending, and sidewalk cafes.
