City Manager Update - October 9, 2020
Short Term Rentals Coming Back
The Fullerton City Council will consider the Short Term Rental issue again at the October 20, 2020 City Council meeting. This was considered at the September 15, 2020 meeting but was continued to a future date. City staff is recommending an approach which focuses on 3 primary goals: Allow the use while protecting the residential character of neighborhoods; Create a mechanism for Code Enforcement to address bad operators; and, Ensure operators pay the proper taxes and licensing fees. The item will be a Public Hearing and is duly noticed in the OC Register as such.
Entertainment in Restaurants - Dining Encouraged, But Not Entertainment
Due to the County of Orange not progressing to the next Tier of the Governors Re-Opening Plan, the in-door dining is still limited to only 25% of a restaurant’s occupancy. Additionally, according to the County Health Officer, no entertainment is allowed at restaurants to include bands, live music, DJ’s, single musicians. The purpose of this is primarily to reduce the incidence of possible exposure by people congregating for the entertainment versus just visiting a restaurant for food purposes. A letter has been sent to all applicable businesses to explain this Health Officer order. COVID Testing. Testing Available at County/Private
