A memo from Nina to City Manager Mike Letcher:

Subject: Per Person Fee to Adult Entertainment Venues

In an effort to further diversify revenue sources for the City of Tucson, please research the legality of a per person fee levied at adult entertainment venues.

If this fee is legal, please run figures on possible revenue generated at rates of $1.50, $3 and $5 per person.
