Fee system proposed for use of City Hall Plaza

Users’ costs widely varied in past; more transparency seen

The move comes after the Globe reported earlier this year that for ­decades, advertising firms, film crews, vendors, and other commercial entities made donations for use of the red-brick plaza to a nonprofit controlled by the mayor’s office. Until now, fees have been negotiated on an individual basis and varied from event to event.
