Fulton County shuts down Poncey-Highland street food vendors

Yesterday was an ideal time to enforce some confusing laws, no? Via John Kessler:

An enforcer with the Fulton County Department of Health & Wellness made the rounds of Poncey-Highland’s burgeoning street-food corridor [Saturday] and shut down all vendors serving hot food in the middle of their lunch rush.

“We were told we could serve our food as long as we weren’t preparing it on the street,” said Leslie Santiago, who runs the weekends-only El Burro Pollo burrito stand with her husband, Hector. “But today they told us we needed to have a license, even on private property.”

County officials also cited The Fry Guy. The King of Pops, however, survived the crackdown. According to Fulton County, the vendors were cited for "being in violation of the Georgia Food Code of 2007, which requires a valid food service permit for any and all mobile food operations."
