Manhattan Beach : Hazardous Materials Fee

May 21, 1987

An ordinance establishing a program to identify and regulate businesses using hazardous materials was unanimously adopted by the City Council.

Business that handle or store hazardous substances will be required to register with the Fire Department every January and pay an annual assessment based on the number of workers employed.

The fee, ranging from $50 to $2,000 depending on the number of workers a company employs, will be used to administer the program and train firefighters and police in handling toxic substances in the event of an emergency.
