SUBJECT:

Title

Commission District(s): All

An Ordinance to Amend Chapter 15 of the DeKalb County Code regarding Business Occupancy Taxes

Body

 

Information Contact: Luz Borrero

Phone Number: 404-371-2562

 

PURPOSE:

To establish the Department of Planning and Sustainability and the Director of Planning and Sustainability as the department and individual responsible for administration of the Business License Code and create a clear process to revoke, suspend, or deny a license, including notice requirements and appeal procedures.

 

NEED/IMPACT:

In 2014, the Business License unit was transferred from the Finance Department to the Department of Planning and Sustainability to enhance customer service and to establish a seamless and effective approach to issuing permits and business license, yet the County Code has not been changed to reflect this transfer. The revised ordinance establishes the Department of Planning and Sustainability and the Director of Planning and Sustainability as the department and individual responsible for administration of the Business License Code. Additionally, the ordinance replaces the existing Certificate Review Board with a Hearing Officer to administer appeals from decisions by the Director of Planning and Sustainability to revoke, suspend, or deny a business license.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

N/A

 

RECOMMENDATION:

Recommended Action

To approve the attached ordinance to amend Chapter 15 of the DeKalb County Code.
