It shall be unlawful for any person to sell any product upon any of the streets and sidewalks within the Special Events District as defined in § 113.01 other than newspapers and magazines, except as provided below:
(A) Any peddler with the proper business license shall be permitted to apply for a permit to sell products within the Special Events District as part of a market, festival, activity or other similar event sponsored or sanctioned by the city or county government. No peddler without the required permit shall otherwise sell products within the Special Events District. All applications for such permits shall be made to and acted upon by the appropriate event sponsor.
(B) Because of space limitations within the boundaries for such events, peddlers may be subject to a selection process established and adopted by the event sponsor. The selection process shall include the adoption of guidelines which insure the fair and equitable selection of all peddlers seeking to sell products at the sponsored event. Peddlers at such events may be assigned locations and shall not operate in any other location. Where locations are assigned, the event sponsor shall develop and adopt fair and equitable guidelines for the assignment of locations. Each event sponsor shall establish and adopt an appropriate appeal process for disgruntled peddlers. In addition to the required licenses, peddlers may be subject to such additional permit fees to be paid to the event sponsor as may be established or approved by the City Council, City Manager or his designee pursuant to division (A) above.
(C) To insure a variety of products the event sponsor shall have the right to limit the types of products a particular person might sell.
(D) The City Manager or his designee shall have the authority to designate the boundaries of any market, festival, activity or other similar event. To accommodate such an event, the City Manager or his designee is further authorized to temporarily close any public streets, sidewalks or other publicly owned areas within the boundaries of any proposed market, festival, activity or similar event. Where such streets, sidewalks or other publicly owned areas are temporarily closed, they shall be for the general use of the public.
