Atlanta Mayor Opposes Temporary Reinstatement of Street Vending | WABE 90.1 FM

Atlanta Street vendors would go back to work sooner rather than later under a city councilman’s proposal.

The plan would temporarily reinstate the old permitting system for city vendors.

Atlanta’s street vendors were cleared out back in March to pave the way for a more uniform citywide system. Mayor Kasim Reed’s administration, however, has yet to establish the new system and complaints from vendors have mounted. Councilman Michael Julian Bond says something must be done.

“These vendors are out of work through no fault of their own and so the temporary program is only proposed to help these people function and get back to work so they can support their families,” said Bond.
