EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
City Council consideration of adopting Ordinance No. 3355 to update Chapter 8.40 of the Corona Municipal Code (CMC) to remove the categories and classification of hazardous materials, which are used to determine the permitting and fee requirements that apply to businesses that handle hazardous materials and to make Chapter 8.40 consistent with the City's recently adopted master fee recovery schedule (fee schedule). The fee schedule is based on the volume and degree of hazard potential of the hazardous materials handled by the businesses subject to CMC Chapter 8.40. The attached Ordinance removes the hazardous materials categories from CMC Section 8.40.060 since they are reflected in the City's fee schedule.

RECOMMENDED ACTION:

That the City Council introduce, by title only, and waive full reading of Ordinance No. 3355, first reading of an ordinance amending various sections of Chapter 8.40 of the Corona Municipal Code regarding hazardous materials disclosure.
