Can Los Angeles officials curb the fees that food delivery apps charge restaurants? It's about to try.

Tomorrow, the Los Angeles City Council will consider asking City Attorney Mike Feuer to prepare an ordinance temporarily banning "third-party food delivery services" such as Uber Eats, Postmates, Grubhub, DoorDash and Caviar from charging restaurants more than 15% of the cost of an online order.

One major caveat: If adopted, that order would only last as long as L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti's public health emergency declaration remains in effect.
