Apache Junction loosens rules on restaurants during outbreak

Posted

The City of Apache Junction has loosened rules for restaurants regarding outdoor seating, parking and signage during the coronavirus outbreak.

With federal and state authorities continuing to recommend social distancing, the city has moved to help its eating and drinking establishments to allow for service outside of their normal operations, according to a release.

Under rules passed by the City Council, enforcement of service rules will be temporarily suspended, allowing for additional outdoor seating, relaxing of parking requirements and allowing temporary signage for all businesses and organizations affected by the COVID-19 emergency.

The temporarily suspension of rules will remain in effect while the city is under the mayor’s proclamation of emergency, which was first made on March 20.

Under the move, approved by the City Council on June 16, all businesses wishing to provide outdoor seating and services adhere to Pinal County Health Department regulations and state liquor control regulations, the release states.
