At a Board meeting on February 2, 2021, the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors unanimously passed an urgency ordinance to put a temporary cap on commissions and fees charged by third-party food delivery services to local restaurants.
The Urgency Ordinance became effective immediately. It applies throughout Contra Costa County except in cities that have adopted their own meal delivery ordinance.
"Local restaurants throughout Contra Costa County help ensure the availability of essential food services, sustain employment, and are important to our communities' economic vitality," said Supervisor Diane Burgis, Board Chair. "We must continue to follow public health orders and guidance during this pandemic while supporting local businesses however we can."
