Did City misrepresent streateries ordinance? | Guest View

I just read in this week's Edmonds Beacon that Economic Development Director Patrick Doherty is representing the following:
"The streateries are allowed by individual permits that are possible because of a temporary ordinance enacted by City Council last winter and scheduled to sunset at the end of 2021. That being said, theoretically, councilmembers could extend the ordinance upon request, but that request has not (yet) been made."
In late 2020, Edmonds City Council was told there was an emergency. The special event permit allowing streatery dining was set to expire Dec. 31, 2020.
