Laredo Vendor Permit

Laredo, TX—January 20, 2011—As the Valentine’s Day holiday approaches, the City of Laredo Building Development Services Department would like to remind all local vendors that they must have a permit if they plan on selling Valentine baskets or other holiday treats. 

A 2004 City of Laredo ordinance requires vendors to have a private premises vendor’s permit, along with other requirements, to be able to sell their wares on Laredo by-ways.  The application process requires, among other things, that private vendors offer restroom facilities and adequate parking for their customers.  The permit, which is issued for a specific location, does not allow for vendors to sell in the City’s right-of-way.

For more information or to report violations, please call the City of Laredo Building Development Services Department at (956) 794-1625.  Anyone wishing to fill out an application can stop by the department, located at 1120 San Bernardo Avenue, Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.  Permits must be obtained at least one week prior to selling goods.

That's good and all but someone needs to tell the corn vendors about these permits.  I don't know if they have one but I've seen people selling corn sacks at two sites in south Laredo.
