The TC City Commission deferred action last night on reducing daily fees for transient food merchants outside the downtown district until its Sept. 3 meeting – action that would have reversed an earlier resolution to double the fees to $100 daily. The city clerk had recommended that the recent increase from $50 to $100 per day only apply to peddlers downtown, as well as establish quarterly and annual rates. Several questions raised by commissioners, however, delayed any motion while clarifications are sought by city staff. Also, last night the commission entered into closed session at the end of the meeting to discuss the trial and settlement issue surrounding the estate of Michael Knudsen, the young man who died while swimming in Clinch Marina in August 2011. The City of Traverse City is named in the $50 million lawsuit.
