The mayor's office announced Monday that it will no longer pursue a fee increase on local businesses to pay for extra health inspectors.

The proposed "health risk impact fee" could have cost some businesses more than $400 a year, but the mayor's office said it was necessary to hire six more inspectors. Based on "new revenue projections," however, the fee won't be needed, according to an e-mail mayoral aide Peter Wagenius sent to Council Members Monday.
