Pursuant to the provisions of Proposition K, adopted by the voters at an election held on November 8, 1983, the Board of Supervisors hereby establishes the fee for a Street Artist Certificate to be as follows: Beginning July 1, 2010, the fee for a quarterly Street Artist Certificate shall be $166.02 and said certificate shall be valid for a period of three months from the date of issuance; except that any person certified as a street artist pursuant to the provisions of this Article shall have the option of purchasing for $664.08 an annual certificate valid for a period of one year from the date of issuance.
Beginning with fiscal year 2013-2014, the Controller, without further action by the Board of Supervisors, shall adjust the fees set forth in this section by an amount that does not exceed changes in the United States Department of Labor and Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Price Index for San Francisco (the “Department of Labor CPI”), or a comparable appropriate Consumer Price Index if the Department of Labor CPI is eliminated or superseded, provided that in no event may the adjusted fee exceed the Arts Commission’s costs of administering and enforcing the provisions of Article 24 of the Police Code (the “Street Artists Ordinance”). No later than April 15th of each year, the Director of Cultural Affairs or his or her designee, shall submit to the Controller the Arts Commission’s current Street Artist Certificate fee schedule and any information the Controller requests regarding the Art Commission’s costs of administering and enforcing the provisions of the Street Artists Ordinance. The Controller shall apply the price index adjustment to produce a new certificate fee schedule for the following year. No later than May 15th of each year, the Controller shall file a report with the Board of Supervisors and the Arts Commission reporting the new certificate fee schedule and certifying that the certificate fees, as adjusted, do not produce revenue that exceeds the Arts Commission costs of administering and enforcing the provisions of the Street Artists Ordinance. Notwithstanding the procedures set forth in this Section, the Board of Supervisors, in its discretion, may modify the fees by ordinance at any time.
