Except as otherwise required by law, it shall be unlawful for the City, any officer, employee or agent to divulge, release or make known in any manner any financial information submitted or disclosed to the City under the terms of this chapter. Nothing in this section shall prohibit:

A. The disclosure of the names and addresses of any person who is operating a restaurant; or

B. The disclosure of general statistics in a form which would prevent the identification of financial information regarding an individual operator; or

C. Presentation of evidence to the court, or other tribunal having jurisdiction in the prosecution of any criminal or civil claim or an appeal for amount due the City under this chapter; or

D. The disclosure of information when such disclosure of conditionally exempt information is ordered under public records law procedures; or

E. The disclosure of records related to a business’s failure to report and remit the tax when the report or tax is in arrears for over six months or the tax exceeds $5,000.00. The City Council expressly finds and determines that the public interest in disclosure of such records clearly outweighs the interest in confidentiality under ORS 192.501(5).
