A.   To maintain accessibility standards for the city’s disabled residents, every sidewalk vendor operating on any sidewalk or public right-of-way must ensure that no obstruction is placed in the sidewalk or public right-of-way that would reduce the width of the sidewalk to less than 48 inches, exclusive of the top of the curb. No obstruction shall be located in a sidewalk or public right-of-way less than six feet in width when the sidewalk is adjacent to the curb.
   B.   To prevent food-borne illness and protect the health and safety of the city’s residents, every sidewalk vendor selling any food or beverage is required to wear a hairnet and food service gloves.
   C.   To prevent dangerous distractions and promote the general welfare of the city’s residents, sidewalk vendors are prohibited from emitting any loud, unnecessary and unusual noises including, but not limited to, using a loudspeaker, blowing any bugle, horn or trumpet, or beating any drum, or ringing any bell, or in any other manner, for the purpose of advertising, announcing or calling attention to any goods, wares, or merchandise.
   D.   A sidewalk vending permit does not provide an exclusive right to operate within any specific portion of the public right-of-way.
   E.   No equipment or objects used for sidewalk vending purposes may be left or maintained in public spaces or in any portion of the public right-of-way from 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m. Any equipment or objects left overnight in public spaces or in any portion of the public right-of-way will be considered discarded and shall be seized or disposed of by the city.
   F.   To facilitate the enforcement of this chapter, every sidewalk vendor must display their city-issued sidewalk vending permit on the street side portion of their pushcart, stand, display, pedal-driven cart, wagon, showcase, rack, or other non-motorized conveyance when operating in the public right-of-way.
   G.   To prevent unintended rolling or slipping, a sidewalk vendor is prohibited from operating a pushcart, pedal-driven cart, wagon, or other non-motorized conveyance on a public-right-of-way with a slope greater than five percent. (Ord. 1852, 3-26-2019)
