On September 15, 2014 the City Commission passed the revised Vendor Ordinance 5-0 on Second Reading without further revisions.
A brief history is in order. This ordinance had been developed over a period of two years. It was prompted primarily by concerns about “Itinerant Retail Produce Merchants” selling items such as watermelons out of the back of trucks. The ordinance was to make legal and control such activities. It then grew to cover all types of vendors everywhere in the City including Mobile Food Vendors both trucks and carts.
