Board of Supervisors Public Hearing Public Notice


Take notice that the Board of Supervisors of Chesterfield County, Virginia, at an adjourned meeting on Wednesday, December 13, 2017, at 6 p.m. in the County Public Meeting Room at the Chesterfield Administration Building, Route 10 and Lori Road, Chesterfield, Virginia, will hold a public hearing to consider:

An ordinance to amend the Code of the County of Chesterfield, 1997, as amended, by amending and re-enacting Sections 6-1, 6-4, 6-7, 6-15, 6-23, 6-40, 6-42, 6-47, 6-48 and 6-50 relating to business licenses for events.

The proposed amendments will replace the license classifications of flea market, craft show, and trade show with a new classification called “vendor event” which will now explicitly include events such as art shows, festivals, farmer’s markets, sporting events, and events where food trucks operate; replace the daily $2 fee per individual vendor per event with a one-time $25 fee, or $100 annual fee, to be paid by the promoter of the event; provide that non-profit promoters who are exempt from licensure may choose to purchase an event license so that individual merchants will be exempt; reduce the itinerant merchant from $250 per location per half-year to $250 per location for the full year and peddler license tax to $250 per year; create a two-tiered licensing for peddlers: $25 per vendor or vehicle for peddlers who do not stay in any one location for longer than 30 minutes and $250 per year for peddlers like food truck vendors that can remain in one location for up to 8 hours/day; expand the license exemption for cart merchants in an enclosed shopping mall to cart merchants in any shopping center; and add fish or animal products harvested from water to the list of homegrown products exempt from the licensure requirements.

 A copy of the full text of the ordinance, including the proposed amendment, is on file in the County Administrator’s office, Room 504, 9901 Lori Road, Chesterfield County, Virginia and may be examined by all interested persons between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
