The Yuma Police Department is making sure those who plan to put up roadside sales stands are playing by the rules.
Most businesses in Yuma have a license to sell their product to the public but for those who set up small roadside shops and do not have one, Yuma Police reminding vendors to obtain one. Police say they implemented this after businesses and community members expressed concern over the issue saying the city should require small roadside shops to apply for a license just like area businesses do.
The city says in order to conduct temporary sales in the city of Yuma, sellers are required to obtain a business license also known as an intinerant license by filling out a form at city hall the office is right next to the area where customers pay their service and water bill, applicants can also apply online and print out a form.
A completed application along with a copy of a valid government issued identification such as a driver's license and a payment of twenty dollars per day is also required when applying for the business license. Police and city members say implenting this requirement will help ensure that both businesses and vendors obide by the rules.
