ACTION: X INFORMATION:
Currently, County Code Section 12-201 requires applications for dance hall permits to be filed with and considered by the Board of Supervisors, and Section 12-202 requires that any such permits be revoked by the Board in the event of any violation by the permittee or for any false statement made on the application.
4.1 Provide effective, responsive and courteous service to our customers
At the Board’s request, the process of approving and revoking dance hall permits is proposed to be changed to an administrative process. After review, it is suggested that the Zoning Administrator is the appropriate person to exercise this responsibility. The Zoning Administrator has an existing process in place to issue permits and is familiar with the Building Code and Fire Code issues required to be reviewed prior to issuance of dance hall permits. Other than the permit approval and revocation process, there are no other changes proposed in the ordinance.
Staff recommends that the Board adopt the proposed ordinance after the public hearing.
