The Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce opposes the ordinance as it would discriminate against convenience stores by subjecting them to more burdensome regulations than other business types. Concerns include the need to focus more attention on addressing issues through enforcement of the City’s existing requirements, and the impact of additional regulatory barriers on the cost of doing business and nearby food options for residents.
Those wanting to voice concerns with the ordinance are encouraged to contact members of Toledo City Council by phone at 419-245-1050 or by sending a message via email. Toledo City Council meetings are held in Council Chambers at One Government Center located in downtown Toledo, and can be attended in-person or viewed via video on the city's website.
