$100 permit fee for a charitable cause

By From page A7 | December 21, 2012


As an active Real Estate Broker in the community I was quite shocked to learn that the City of Placerville saw fit to charge the El Dorado County Association of Realtors a $100 permit fee to place the annual “Can Tree” at the Belltower in downtown Placerville this year. It is through the hard work of fellow realtors, countless donations of products and time that the Realtor body can provide food, toys and gifts to those in need in the area. At this time of giving, you would think that the City of Placerville could join in and support the cause.

I would like to hear of the reasoning or lack thereof from the city as to why they are the Scrooges of the season.
