In addition to a business license, any newsrack that is located in whole or in part on any public sidewalk or parkway must be registered with the Engineering Division of the Public Works Department before it is installed in the city. Once the registration application for a newsrack is completed by the owner, it should be submitted to the Public Works Department for review. The application package must contain a certificate of liability insurance and a written statement to indemnify and hold the city harmless against any loss, liability or damage sustained as a result of the installation, use or maintenance of the newsrack. Once the application is approved and the Public Works Department has assigned a location, each newsrack may stay at the assigned location as long as it is in compliance with the Gardena Municipal Code. At the time of registration and annually thereafter, the applicant is required to pay the city a registration fee in the amount of $33.00 for each rack in addition to an annual business license fee. Annual proof of insurance is required as well. In the event of a change of ownership of a newsrack or a change of publication, the new owner must immediately inform the Public Works Department in writing of the change and provide the name, address and telephone number of the new owner(s) and/or publication. The Newsrack Registration Application is provided below and it is also available for pick up at the Engineering Division of the Public Works Department located at 1717 W. 162nd Street in Gardena.
