Ten dollars were the equivalent of almost $300 today, but it probably had a bigger purchase power. Previously the cost of the permit was $2.00 so it was eventually increased five times and for what reason?
So, void the already-issued 120 permits, make them the Permit system be the realm of the Chief of Police and have the citizens pay $10 for so a hopeful kitty of $1,200 that goes into the coffers of the Police Pension Fund.
