Question 7:
Businesses and others continue to complain about high fire inspection fees, which exceed those in other communities.  How would you address these concerns?  Would you support continuing working with Daly City and Brisbane or, going out to other entities, like South San Francisco, or Cal Fire to provide fire administration and management?  Given the fact that California has been on fire almost year around, do you feel it may be appropriate to put resources towards wild fire prevention and education?

Question 9:
How can the city better promote tourism?

Given that hotel tax is one of our most consistent sources of revenue for Pacifica, the City has worked with the Chamber in creating and sustaining the Business Improvement District (BID) with the Hotels. The BID has hosted visits to Pacifica with room nights and itineraries resulting in Pacifica being seen across many media outlets.  In the past, the City partnered with the chamber and awarded them an annual grant that started at $45,000 to assist with the visitor center.  A few years ago that amount was reduced and finally eliminated.   Would you support reinstating funding for the chamber and visitor center to expand tourism promotion?  What other ways would you suggest to promote tourism?
