This week, Councilman Krekorian co-sponsored a motion authored by Councilmember Mitch O'Farrell that would reduce by half the fees the devastated restaurant industry pays delivery services. Currently, the services can charge up to 30% of the cost of the delivery. The motion lowers that figure to no more than 15%.
At a time when restaurants across Los Angeles are utterly dependent on delivery and take out sales, this reduction provides a modicum of relief. It next goes before the full City Council for final approval.
