City re-regulates temporary vendors
Approved ordinance includes grace period for existing businesses

By a 4-1 vote Tuesday, Statesboro City Council enacted a Temporary Vendors Ordinance that had been in the works, through various drafts and changes, for about a year. The ordinance, as approved, does not distinguish roadside stands that operate only a few days, or a flea market that opens on Saturdays throughout the year, from seasonal vendors that sell Halloween pumpkins or Christmas trees for a month or more. Earlier drafts would have made seasonal vendors as a separate category with different rules.
