WHEREAS, the Department of Public Health has proposed an ordinance increasing the licensing fee for garbage trucks and the amount deposited into the Mandatory Refuse Collection Service Fund; and,
WHEREAS, the proposed increase covers the operating costs of implementing the Mandatory Refuse Collection Ordinance passed by the Board of Supervisors and signed into law in 1987; and
WHEREAS, due to an administrative error the fee increase was not acted on by the Health Commission, however, billing at the new rate commenced in 1996; and,
WHEREAS, the proposed ordinance is intended to correct this administrative error; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, that the Health Commission approves the proposed amendments to Section 10.100-7 of the San Francisco Administrative Code and Section 249.6 of the San Francisco Business and Tax Regulations Code; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Health Commission ratifies past activities taken in connection with the collection of such licensing fee; and, be it
FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Health Commission recommends these amendments to the Board of Supervisors.
I hereby certify that the foregoing resolution was adopted by the San Francisco Health Commission at its meeting of October 15, 2002.
Michele Olson, Executive Secretary to the Health Commission
