§ 6.14.

ATHLETIC EVENTS; COST RECOVERY – PUBLIC WORKS

a.

An application for a temporary street closing for an athletic event shall be deemed a request for Department of Public Works services within the meaning of Sections 10B.11 through 10B.15 of the San Francisco Administrative Code. If the temporary street closing is approved, the Director of Public Works may detail such personnel to provide street-cleaning and related services for the event in the number and for the period of time the Director of Transportation determines to be necessary to perform the services. The applicant for the temporary street closing shall be liable for the cost of street-cleaning and related services, including field investigation needed to determine manpower requirements, and shall be responsible for indemnifying and holding harmless the City and County of San Francisco and the Department of Public Works personnel as required by Section 10B.12.

b.

Upon approval of a temporary street closing for an athletic event, a sum of money which the Director of Public Works estimates will be necessary to cover the costs of services pursuant to Section 10B.12 of the Administrative Code shall be due. No approval shall be deemed effective until such sum of money is deposited with the Director of Public Works. The sum of money required pursuant to this paragraph shall be deposited at least one calendar week before the scheduled event. If the applicant does not deposit the sum required within the time limit specified, the application for a temporary street closing shall be deemed denied, or, if the street closing has already been approved, revoked. The Director of Public Works may waive the advance deposit requirement if the particular event has not required additional street-cleaning or related services for the past three years. The applicant shall, however, remain liable for the costs of any additional services actually required.

c.

Within a reasonable time after the event is over, the Director of Public Works shall determine the amount of money necessary to cover the cost of services provided by the Department of Public Works pursuant to Section 10B.12 of the Administrative Code. If the deposit pursuant to Subsection (b) hereof is insufficient to cover the cost of street-cleaning and related services, the Director of Public Works shall notify the applicant by United States mail to the address listed on the application and he or she shall have ten days to pay the balance. If the amount deposited exceeds the actual costs, the Director of Public Works shall authorize a refund of the excess to the applicant at the address shown on the application.

d.

If the Board of Supervisors has approved a temporary street closing for an athletic event and the applicant cancels the event after personnel have been assigned to provide street-cleaning and related services to the event and such personnel have begun that duty, the applicant shall be liable for the time expended by Department of Public Works personnel pursuant to Section 10B.12 of the San Francisco Administrative Code. If a temporary street closing is revoked, the money deposited for the costs of street-cleaning and related services pursuant to this Article shall be refunded.
