In connection with efforts to collect unpaid City business license taxes pursuant to Chapter 605 of the City Code of Ordinances, the City Administrator and his designees are hereby authorized to design and implement an amnesty program, which may involve those delinquent taxpayers that come forth voluntarily on initial City request and promptly pay overdue taxes, a release of any obligation as penalties and interest. Such amnesty program may involve such other parameters as may in the judgment of the City Administrator best serve the interests of the City, including less comprehensive releases of obligations for those delinquent taxpayers that do not come forth voluntarily on initial City request but nonetheless respond to subsequent requests or demands prior to entry of any court judgment regarding their unpaid tax obligations. In connection with these collection efforts, the City Administrator and his designees shall also be authorized to make reasonable arrangements for compromise of any legitimately disputed tax obligation. The City Administrator shall regularly report to the City Council regarding the City's efforts to collect unpaid business license taxes through and including March 31, 2010, so that the Council may consider the efficacy of the City's collection efforts and such amnesty program.
