MAYOR BLOOMBERG SIGNS LEGISLATION EXTENDING DEADLINE FOR FOOD VENDOR APPLICATIONS
Remarks by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg at a Public Hearing on Local Laws
"The next bill before me is Introductory Number 696, sponsored by Council Members Felder, Quinn, Recchia, Avella, Barron, Brewer, Fidler, Liu and Stewart. This bill provides for the renewal of certain mobile food vendor permits.
"Under the City's Administrative Code, mobile food vendors must present their food carts for inspection within six months of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene certifying receipt of a completed renewal application. This legislation provides eligible vendors suffering a serious illness or hospitalization between May 1, 2004 and November 1, 2004 who were unable to present their food cart for inspection an additional opportunity to do so."
