One of our Downtown businesses contacted us about new increased fees they had been charged from Doordash, a delivery service company.
In response, the City Manager has signed and extended the protections of the previous executive order, to cap the per order delivery service fees at 15%.
The previous executive order expired when dine-in service became allowed again, however, the City recognizes that the impacts continue to be significant for your businesses, and the new executive order extends the temporary limit for as long as the health emergency declaration is in place.
Since the prior order terminated on May 30
when the county allowed dine in, and the new order is effective as of July 14th, any delivery service company that charged a higher commission for delivery service between 5/30 - 7/14 are not in violation of this current order. As in the prior order, there is a grace period between 7/14- 7/24 to those who charge the higher commission provided they refund it prior to the end of the month.
