|SIDEWALK FOOD STANDS DISCUSSED|
TEAM REVIEWS FOOD STAND RULES 3-16-16 LMS
Councilman and Public Safety Team Chairman Ken Hill told the March 16 meeting of the Salmon City Council that several people have raised questions about setting up mobile food stands along Main Street during special events. He said the team has ascertained that state code does not allow those stands along state highways which means they are illegal on Salmonís Main Street.
Hill said permits can be issued for specific locations on private properties along Main Street as long as the vendor meets all health department codes including pressurized hot and cold water along with a city license. He said that basically mobile food operations are not allowed on Main Street. Exceptions to the rule would be private properties containing spacious setbacks from the sidewalks.
A ride-along program was offered during the Public Safety Teamís February meeting to give council members a better understanding of issues faced by law enforcement personnel. In a follow-up report Hill said no members have as yet availed themselves of that opportunity and he encouraged them to do so.
Whether or not a new police policy manual being offered by the Idaho Counties Risk Management Program (ICRMP) is needed was discussed by the team. Hill said the cost of the manual cannot be justified since the current policy manual is good and updates to it can be secured online without the costs associated with a new one.
The next meeting of the cityís Public Safety Team will be April 13 at 4:30 PM in the City Hall Conference Room.
