Letter Sent to The Hon. John Street
April 15, 1998
Dear Council President Street:
In light of the concerns expressed by the Department of Licenses and
Inspections regarding the inclusion of language in Bill No. 980022 establishing
a Vending Advisory Board, we would like to express once again our willingness
to participate in any forum City Council and the Department would consider
appropriate to ensure the smooth implementation of the Vending Ordinance
and to address issues that may arise in the future as vending in University
City continues to evolve. We anticipate that our neighbor institutions,
such as the University City Science Center and the Children's Hospital of
Philadelphia would also participate in this forum.
Assuming that such an arrangement would be acceptable to City Council
and the Department of Licenses & Inspections, we will promptly begin
working with you, Councilwoman Blackwell, Commissioner Egan, and all other
necessary parties to establish such a body as quickly as possible.
- Carol R. Scheman, Vice President for Government,
- Community and Public Affairs
