Ordinance to Amend County Code Chapter 12, Regulated Enterprises



SUBJECT/PROPOSAL/REQUEST:   Schedule a public hearing to consider the adoption of an Ordinance to amend County Code Chapter 12, Regulated Enterprises, to reorganize the chapter


ITEM TYPE:  Consent Action Item


STAFF CONTACT(S):  Richardson, Walker, Kamptner, Bessette, Lantz






REVIEWED BY: Jeffrey B. Richardson


BACKGROUND:  The Board has directed the County Attorney’s Office to conduct a comprehensive review and recodification of the County Code. Chapter 12 of the County Code regulates false alarms, amusements, dealers in precious metals, solicitors and peddlers, and taxicabs and other vehicles for hire. The most recent amendment to Chapter 12 was the revision of the false alarm provisions in 2015. 


STRATEGIC PLAN: Mission - To enhance the well-being and quality of life for all community members through the provision of the highest level of public service consistent with the prudent use of public funds


DISCUSSION:  The process of recodifying the County Code includes making formatting, style, organizational, and substantive changes. These changes are being addressed at the chapter level before the Board considers adopting a complete, recodified County Code.

The attached proposed Ordinance removes Article 2, Amusements, and Article 5, Taxicabs and Other Vehicles for Hire. These removals reflect that these are outmoded areas of the Code, because County staff no longer relies upon them.

Where possible, without changing the underlying substance, staff has included stylistic revisions, eliminating archaic or redundant language, to make the chapter easier to read


BUDGET IMPACT: There is no expected budget impact.




Staff recommends that the Board schedule a public hearing to consider adoption of the attached proposed ordinance (Attachment A) at a future Board meeting.
