Action Alert: Proposed legislation to license street food vendors
Columbus City Council is considering a measure that would require licensing ($150/yr) for community markets, defined as “any organized gathering of persons to primarily sell… merchandise, fruits, meats, dairy, vegetables, garden produce and/or food for human consumption.” That could mean community markets, farmer’s markets, food trucks, what have you. There will be a presentation from Public Safety and an opportunity for the public to comment TOMORROW, Thursday the 14th, and a second reading on June 25, at which there will be a second opportunity and possibly a final vote.
Please attend and comment! If you cannot do so, please email questions before 3pm Thursday to John Ivanic, firstname.lastname@example.org, who will pass them along to presenters. For specific questions on the measure, call Councilwoman Michelle Mills’ office at 614-645-5344.
Update: Thursday’s hearing will be held at 5:00 p.m., in Council Chambers.
