Said motion'was seconded by Councilman Jacobi and <br />carried on roll call "vote as follows: <br /> <br />AYES: Councilmen Camphouse, Jacobi, Phillips, Reibold <br />NOES: None <br />ABSENT: Mayor Dennis <br /> <br />HEARING <br />(Avon <br />Products) <br />-,} 31t <br /> <br />Application of Avon Products, Inc. for a permit to solicit sales <br />of cosmetic products. <br /> <br />The City Clerk reported that she had a communication from Mrs. <br />Beatrice Criss, Sales Manager of Avon Products, Inc., together <br />with their application, giving an Arcadia address of l045 West <br />Huntington Drive, and designating the hours that Arcadia will be <br />served, namely, Monday through Friday, 8:30 to 5:00 P.M. and in <br />the evening, on call. She also stated that Mrs. Criss, represent- <br />ing Avon Products, was present. <br /> <br />1 <br /> <br />Mayor Pro Tempore Phillips inquired of the applicant if she desired <br />to add anything to the application, to which she replied that she <br />did not but that she would answer any questions. He then inquired <br />if anyone wished to speak in favor of the applicantion, or in <br />opposition to the application. No one appearing, he stated he <br />would then entertain a motion that the hearing be closed. <br /> <br />Councilman Camphouse moved that the hearing be closed. Councilman <br />Reibold seconded the motion and it was carried unanimously. <br /> <br />Councilman Camphouse stated that several weeks ago similar <br />applications for permits to solicit had been made and the <br />applicants were informed that the City Council has under study <br />currently an ordinance to cover this particular situation, and <br />that in fairness to all concerned, no action would be taken on any <br />permit, but would be taken under advisement until such time as an <br />ordinance was adopted, which was assumed to be in a short period <br />of time. On the basis of that and in fairness to others who have <br />appeared before this Council, Councilman Camphouse moved that the <br />application of Avon Products be taken under advisement. Council- <br />man Reibold seconded the motion. <br /> <br />Councilman Reibold questioned item 4 of the application, to wit: <br />"Description of proposed location of business: l045 West Huntington <br />Drive," an Arcadia address, relating to the sales tax. Mrs. Criss <br />informed the Council that the Huntington Drive address is the <br />headquarters of Avon Products for all representatives working out <br />of this area. <br /> <br />The City Attorney stated that the sales tax in all cities is paid <br />under the Bradley-Burns tax law quarterly and then apportioned <br />according to the sales; that one of two situations would apply; <br />that is, if a license is issued to this individual or to this <br />location as a fixed place of business in Arcadia, then all the 1 <br />sales tax would be returnable without question to the City_of <br />Arcadia. If they operate under a Sales and Use Tax permit, as <br />does Avon Products in Pasadena, then all sales subject to sales <br />tax, are reported as such to the State and then are returned to <br />the various agencies of government in Los Angeles County in the <br />same proportion as direct sales taxes are reported from fixed <br />places of business in the respective agencies of government; <br /> <br />Mr. David W. Mitchell of Avon Products in Pasadena addressed" the <br />Council, stating that at the present time Avon Products is operat- <br />ing under the Bradley-Burns tax law, in that it is collecting <br />sales tax on sales made in all communities in all counties of <br />California, and reporting.these sales and sales tax to the State <br />of California; that if Council felt that another manner of tax <br />collection would be more advantageous to Arcadia that Avon would <br />be in position to collect sales tax in any manner Council deemed <br />best. He added that there are counties in the State of ' California <br />that are not currently under the Bradley-Burns tax law and sales <br /> <br />tax is collected in those counties for the various communities <br />and paid to those communities as indicated in the first example <br /> <br />2. <br /> <br />2-4-58 <br />
