Tropical Islands in Baldwin Park

With all the talk about day laborers and illegal street vendors in Baldwin Park, I hope these guys — who were selling funnel cake and smoothies in the Wal-Mart parking lot on Friday — had a permit.

You might remember Councilman Anthony Bejarano’s attempt a few weeks back to bring a controversial ordinance back to the table amid continued complaints of day laborers at the Home Depot shopping center, and other illegal vendors in parking lots across Baldwin Park. The ordinance would have banned such practices in parking lots.

But the bid wasn’t very successful — most of Bejarano’s colleagues on the dais weren’t very responsive. Bejarano argues the issue must be dealt with eventually.

    if you are going to inquire about them having a food permit, then investigate how many city events with food vendors have permits? They are all a business trying to make a profit – even the nonprofit groups.

    Bejarano is a drunk and a loser. Just like his father.

    I hear that these vendors are buddies with lozano and marlen garcia and that’s why they get to do this illegal activity. It’s the same crap with home depot no controls and do the buddy deals for everyone who will give money to their campaign fund. The council redeveloped the wal mart and home depot area and now they keep trying to go back looking like little TJ. This is why we must stop these idiots at the elections this year in NOV. 09. The real citizens and legal residents of baldwin park say go home to the illegals and get rid of these people who run this city.

    They are also friends with Monica Garcia and have donated heavily to her campaign.

    Monica Garcia should not even be on our Council. She does not live in BP. She lives with her boyfriend in Los Angeles.

    DA investigation ongoing.

    Some fake BSer said that about Anthony not me.

    Does anyone know where Tropical Islands is now or how to find them? I don’t see them at Walmart in Baldwin Park anymore. I love their hot dogs.
