The county Board of Supervisors is seeking sponsorship in the state Legislature for more flexible wording to the state law regulating temporary food vendors.
The county's Health Department was criticized by community organizations in August for the department's enforcement of the California Uniform Food Facilities Law.
Representatives of the organizations said the county's strict enforcement of the law would devastate their ability to raise money.
The law regulates food vendor sanitation. The law only allows temporary food vending used by community organizations to operate once a year.
With the help of business leaders, county Supervisor Gary Wyatt drafted more flexible wording to sections 114332 and 113823 of the law, allowing the non-profit charitable temporary food vendors to operate during annual community events.
