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.
