Mayor Dan Gelber has previously been the sponsor of several amendments to the City’s sidewalk café ordinance, as codified in Sections 82-366 through 82-388 of the City Code, and is presently sponsoring an amendment which, in pertinent part, creates a Sidewalk Café “Code of Conduct”, for those sidewalk cafés operating within the City. The proposed amendment also mandates that all applicants for a sidewalk café permit shall be required to execute an affidavit evidencing receipt of the Sidewalk Café Code of Conduct, and agreement to be bound by same, with any violation(s) of the Code of Conduct subject to those enhanced penalties set forth in Section 82-371(b) of the City Code.
The Administration recommends adoption of the ordinance on first reading by the City Commission and setting it for second reading and public hearing.
