Body

 

WHEREAS, the City of Atlanta is host to many sporting and cultural events held throughout the years, and

 

WHEREAS, these events are well-attended, requiring a large amount of public safety resources to be used to ensure the safety of attendees and the safe flow of traffic, and

 

WHEREAS, these funds generated from such a surcharge would be restricted to supplementing the City's existing public safety funding within the Atlanta Police Department, Atlanta Fire & Rescue Department, and Atlanta Corrections Department, and

 

WHEREAS, such surcharges would be placed upon each individual ticket sold for applicable events, and

 

WHEREAS, the surcharge would only be applied to ticketed events with over 1000 tickets available, and

 

WHEREAS, the surcharge would not apply to ticketed charity events, and

 

WHEREAS, the surcharge would be assessed on a sliding-scale that correlates to the face-value of the ticket.

 

NOW THEREFORE, THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF ATLANTA, GEORGIA, HEREBY RESOLVES:

 

Section 1: The Mayor, on behalf of the City, requests that the Chief Financial Officer study the implementation and collection of a public safety surcharge to be added to each ticket sold for non-charity cultural and sporting events held within the City of Atlanta with over 1000 tickets available, funds from which would be solely designated to supplement public safety funding.

 

Section 2: That the Chief Financial Officer report his findings to both the Public Safety & Legal Administration Committee and the Finance/Executive Committee within 60 days of this resolution being signed by the Mayor or becoming effective by operation of law.
