TITLE

Recommendation to authorize City Manager, or designee, to process a refund in the amount of $12,900 to Tony Kassas for a project located at 6095 Orange Avenue.  (District 9)

 

DISCUSSION

On October 27, 2021, Tony Kassas paid fees to the City of Long Beach for plan check services and surcharges related to the preparation of a Conditional Use Permit entitlement application for the construction of a new Wireless Telecommunications Facility at 6095 Orange Avenue. However, the applicant has since withdrawn the application and is eligible for a refund of $12,900.

 

In accordance with Long Beach Municipal Code Section 3.48.040, refunds exceeding $10,000 must be approved by the City Attorney and the City Council. Authorization to process the refund is requested on behalf of the applicant.

 

This matter was reviewed by Assistant City Attorney Dawn A. McIntosh on May 10, 2022 and by Revenue Management Geraldine Alejo on May 17, 2022.

 

TIMING CONSIDERATIONS

City Council action is requested on June 14, 2022, to expedite processing of the refund.

 

FISCAL IMPACT

The approval of this recommendation will result in a refund of fees totaling $12,900 from the Development Services Fund Group in the Development Services Department. This recommendation has no staffing impact beyond the normal budgeted scope of duties and is consistent with existing City Council priorities. There is no local job impact associated with this recommendation.

 

SUGGESTED ACTION

Approve recommendation.

 

Respectfully Submitted,

OSCAR W. ORCI

DIRECTOR OF DEVELOPMENT SERVICES
