Public Works Committee to hold last of two public hearings on the proposed Itinerant Vendors, Peddlers and Solicitors Ordinance

November 12, 2018

Louisville – The Metro Council’s Public Works, Facilities, Transportation and Accessibility Committee will hold the last of two public hearings on the proposed Itinerant Vendors, Peddlers and Solicitors Ordinance this Tuesday, November 13th at its regularly scheduled meeting beginning at 3:00pm.     

“At the first hearing, we heard from those vendors who are currently regulated by Metro Louisville to give us their input on what has been proposed,” says Councilman Pat Mulvihill (D-10), who chairs the Committee. “We are ready to hear and receive input from anyone else who has an interest regarding the regulation of these types of vendors.”

The second hearing will be held in the Council Chambers, 601 West Jefferson Street, 3rd floor.

 “The Committee welcomes all viewpoints on this legislation. As we have said before we are taking the time necessary to make sure we have a good ordinance. After these two hearings we will begin to move forward with a final product,” says Councilwoman Barbara Sexton Smith (D-4).

Mulvihill and Sexton Smith are cosponsors of the Ordinances along with Council members Brandon Coan (D-8) and Scott Reed (R-16).

Speakers are called in order of signup and have up to three minutes to make comments.  Written testimony can be turned in during the meeting and occasionally, speakers are asked questions by the Committee members.
