Statement from Gretchen Dykstra, Commissioner of the Department of Consumer Affairs regarding the vending law
"The Department of Consumer Affairs, along with the Mayor's Office of the Criminal Justice Coordinator, continues to review the complicated laws and regulations governing vendors citywide. While we proceed in holding productive meetings with numerous individuals and organizations on this issue, there are no proposals yet. Vendors are a vital and integral part of this City's landscape and we look forward to reaching a fair and equitable solution that works for everyone."
