Crestview leaders eye regulating mobile vendors, garage sales

"We have all seen it: Every once in a while, we will have a flea market on Industrial Boulevard between (State Road) 85 and Interstate 10, and people are pulling off the four-lane highway ... parked all over the road, sideways ... it becomes a hazard," he said.

Also under consideration are garage sale regulations.

Some homeowners frequently have garage sales and use their homes as storefronts, which, Helt said, has raised resident complaints.

Davis suggested having city code-enforcement officials occasionally work on Saturdays to address those issues.

Helt agreed.

"As a prudent government, we have an obligation to see to it efficiently run on a Saturday," she said. "We can't just say that it happened on a Saturday so there is nothing we can do."

Davis said he plans to meet with city officials and council members individually to further discuss the ordinance. He plans to have the ordinance ready for the council to vote on in the next couple of months.
