City seeking to require restaurants, bars, entertainments, night clubs to maintain sidewalks outside their business clean.

Licensing and Standards Committee recommends that:

 

1. City Council approve amendments to Toronto Municipal Code, Chapter 545, Licensing to require restaurants, bars, entertainments, night clubs and other establishments which require licensing to maintain the public sidewalk surrounding their business free from littered cigarette butts, cigar tips, electronic cigarettes and any refuse disposal generated by their patrons at all times.

 

2. City Council amend Toronto Municipal Code, Chapter 545, Licensing to ensure cigarette disposal containers or receptacles be mandatory at bars, entertainment establishments, nightclubs and other businesses where patrons dispose cigarette butts on public sidewalks.
