Disabled exempted from vendor law

November 19, 1991|By Baltimore County Bureau of The Sun

The Baltimore County Council voted 6-0 last night to exempt the blind and handicapped from a requirement that they keep moving while operating sidewalk food carts.

Current law required sidewalk vendors to keep moving because restaurant owners say they represent unfair competition at fixed sites. But the requirement shut down Kenneth Canterbery, a blindhot dog vendor who had been operating a food stand in Dundalk and later in Towson.

The new law will require blind or handicapped sidewalk vendors to set up at least 100 feet from the nearest restaurant or food store.
