Hannah Swanbom was in attendance and requested a special fee for the transient merchant permit the Farmers Market in Washington Park. She explained that from her own experiences, she has been to places that charge as little as $5.00 a day and as much as $20.00 for the entire year. Ms. Swanbom also explained that there is an interest from vendors in the Market, but due to the late timing of the Markets structuring, there will not be markets this year. Dennis Meier suggested checking into Title 33 as well. For this reason, the special permit was tabled.
