Stamford is set to approve a measure that would make outdoor dining more expensive for restaurants.
The city has been negotiating its plan with restaurants for nearly a year.
John Zelinksy, of the Stamford Board of Representatives, says that it's time for restaurants to start paying more for patrons to eat outside. The flat fee would jump from $100 to $250 a year. That fee also pertains to eateries that exclusively use their own private property.
Restaurants that also use public sidewalks would pay $2 for every square foot occupied.
