Any food establishment with an outdoor eating area may apply for a variance waiving the prohibition against dogs on premises of a food establishment. The variance to allow dogs on the premises of a food establishment's outdoor patio area will be granted if the City Environmental Health Division determines a health hazard or nuisance will not result. The establishment must pay a non-refundable application fee of two hundred ($200) dollars. A variance granted under this section is nontransferable and shall be reviewed biannually.
These signs shall be issued by the Environmental Health department upon granting of the variance.
