The NYC Hospitality Alliance is happy to report that the Department of Consumer Affairs agreed to our request to waive sidewalk cafe fees
The NYC Hospitality Alliance is happy to report that the city’s Department of Consumer Affairs has agreed to our request to waive sidewalk cafe consent fees this quarter (March 1 to May 31). Any consent fees already collected will be refunded. The agency will also reevaluate future fees in the coming months. We thank Mayor de Blasio’s Administration for working with us and supporting our industry during this trying time. We will continue to work with our government officials to enact polices that will support our local restaurants and nightlife venues during this crisis.
