Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution extends the end date of the Streatery Program until April 14, 2022. Adopted RES-20-00439 (File 60695) allowed restaurants and taverns to expand outdoor service areas and adopted RES-21-00079 (File 63529) extended the waiver of street vending fees for the 2021-2022 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 an eating area expands into the roadway.
