Fresno, CA mobile ice cream vendors may get a reprieve from the city council there regarding their ability to park close to schools.

* Fresno, CA mobile ice cream vendors may get a reprieve from the city council there regarding their ability to park close to schools. The council passed an ordinance in 2003 requiring vendors to park their vans at least 1,000 feet from school property. According to a report in The Fresno Bee, the vendors say the distance requirement essentially keeps them from selling ice cream in much of the city. If they do cross that line, they are subject to a $200 fine. The council is consider reducing the limit to 150 feet, but some members still expressed concern that by operating closer to schools, the vendors would put students at risk of running into traffic.
