News Release
Fairview enacts food delivery fee cap to help struggling restaurants - 11/18/20

The Fairview City Council unanimously approved an emergency ordinance setting temporary limitations on the commissions and fees third-party order and delivery services may charge restaurants during a special meeting on November 17, 2020. The ordinance is in effect immediately and will continue through the duration of the state ordered state of emergency.

With restaurants being required to close all indoor and outdoor dining as stipulated by Governor Brown’s imposed four-week freeze on Multnomah County due to rapidly increasing COVID cases, the Fairview City Council felt it crucial to take immediate action to ease the burden on struggling restaurants that will continue to offer take-out and delivery options to the public, stated Mayor Brian Cooper. Cities including Portland, Gresham, and Troutdale have already taken similar action to limit the commissions and fees charged for use of third-party, app-based food delivery platforms and prevent reduced compensation to delivery drivers.

During these difficult times the Fairview City Council would like to remind customers to shop local and patronize local restaurants, who are increasingly reliant on takeout and delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to do what we can to ensure all of our local businesses and restaurants survive these unprecedented times.
