An Ordinance to Amend Chapter 4 of the City Code Regarding the Registration of Vacant Properties

Synopsis: This Ordinance is being presented by City Council for Council’s review and approval. If approved, Council would be authorizing an amendment to the City’s Vacant Property Registration Fee Law that would create a category of “occupancy ready” and would exempt buildings that qualify for the new category from the imposition of an annual vacant property registration fee. Additionally, non-profit housing providers who receive a vacant building from the City for rehabilitation or receive public funds from the City for the acquisition, rehabilitation or redevelopment of a vacant building will no longer be billed for a vacant property fee. Rather, these non-profit housing providers will be billed only from the time that the entity received the property or funds from the City. This provision is retroactive for May 1, 2003. Finally, under this Ordinance, all non-profit agencies as defined by the IRS may be eligible for a four-year waiver of their vacant property registration fee.

An Ordinance to Amend Chapter 37 of the Wilmington City Code to Establish a “Commercial Services Parking Permit”

Synopsis: This Ordinance is being presented by City Council for Council’s review and approval. If approved, Council would be authorizing the creation of a new parking permit category— Commercial Services Parking Permit—which would be issued to for-profit commercial services companies that provide services to properties located within the City limits. A commercial service company may apply for a Commercial Services Parking Permit from the City on an annual basis for a fee of $200. The permit authorizes the operator of a commercial service company vehicle to park the vehicle on any City street Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. in order to provide a service to a City property without incurring a parking ticket. This includes parking at metered parking spaces. A company applying for such a permit must possess a valid City-issued business license and must not have any outstanding financial obligations to the City including parking tickets, taxes and/or fees.
