City going after unauthorized vending, including yard sales
Published: November 13,2012
WEST POINT — The West Point Police Department plans to crack down on unauthorized vendors.
Police Chief Tim Brinkley tells the Daily Times Leader people who continue to set up shops to sell their goods without a permit will first be issued a warning and asked to move along.
If unauthorized sells continue, Brinkley says the vendors will be issued a citation. Violation of the city’s peddler ordinance carries a fine up to $1,000.
Even if residents wish to sell items in their yard they must first obtain a permit from City Hall to do so. There is no fee for yard sale permits.
Vendors wanting to sell food items must be inspected and approved by the Clay County Health Department. There are exceptions for certain individuals or organizations.
