Repeal of Regulatory Code Provisions Related to Amusement Devices and Establishments
VOTES: 5-0 (PASS)
A small business owner contacted Supervisor Anderson’s office when he realized that San Diego City and San Diego County amusement device ordinances differed in their restrictions, limiting the ability of small businesses in unincorporated County areas to operate in the same manner as small businesses in the City. To correct this, Supervisor Anderson and Vice Chair Vargas introduced a board letter that advocated for repealing the outdated County regulatory code provisions relating to amusement devices, like arcade games. This repeal will now allow all small businesses to expand their customer base and workforce, reduce an unnecessary regulatory burden, and grant the same business opportunities to unincorporated areas that are available to those in incorporated areas.
