City sponsored events marketed as family friendly will now include strict adherence to new vendor guidelines.
The changes, and the situation prompting the change, were discussed at the Tuesday, Jan 18 city council meeting.
Matt Foster, parks superintendent, said the vendor was originally approved to sell children’s toys, but then also had merchandise that was profane.
“That, in turn, caused upset residents,” Foster said. “We, of course, want to keep this event family friendly so we want to limit that in the future.”
Foster said changes were made to the application process and vendor guidelines. Under the new guidelines, applications must be submitted five business days before the event or until the city has accepted its maximum number of applications.
