Still no rules for temporary vendors
Despite grandfather clause, council doesn't act
City Statesboro logo
This week, Statesboro City Council received another revision of a proposed ordinance to regulate "temporary" vendors. It contained a provision to allow existing businesses such as Green Man's Corner and Ellis' Open Market to remain as they are, but no council member offered a motion to approve it. At previous meetings, some members expressed objections to imposing new rules on businesses that, although called "temporary" because they lack buildings, have been operating in their current locations for months or years.
