Budget Motion / Mayors Proposed 2020-21 Budget / Non-City Entities / Fiscal Year Pre-Paid Permits / Permit-Issuing Bureaus / General Fund Savings / Upfront City Staff Costs

MOTION-- I MOVE that the Mayor’s Proposed Budget for 2020-21 be amended to instruct the City
Administrative Officer to report on the feasibility of allowing non-City entities such as utilities
and telecommunications providers, to pre-pay permitting costs for the entire fiscal year at permit issuing bureaus, specifically the Bureau of Street Lighting and the Bureau of Engineering and
whether such mechanism would generate general fund savings and cover upfront City staffing
costs at the start of the upcoming fiscal year.


Change such other affected totals, subtotals, summaries, scheduled or supporting data as
are necessary to conform to modifications hereinabove made.
