 It Don't Come Easy

It will take one or several serious food poisoning events for the state to require the same licensing and permitting process for ALL street vendors. Just to be on the safe side, if you don't see Purell nearby, don't eat it!


Burlingame has been supporting non-brick-n-mortar vendors for as long as I can remember. Food trucks, Farmers Markets, etc. To hell with those shops who pay millions to the coffers every year which goes to support schools, roads parks, police protection...

Does Burlingame already have a business licensing system??? Of course we do! There are business in our town. Add another tab or checkbox to the existing business licensing system and you're done. Problem solved. No cost, no sweat. Hell, I have close to zero coding knowledge and I could build you a decent licensing system from the ground up using off-the-shelf products within 3 days. I guarantee it.

We're some of the richest people living in one of the richest cities in the richest nation on Earth. We can easily afford a negligible expense to help protect the most vulnerable people in our population using a system that already exists. It make me disappointed to hear people whine about situations like these.
