RS Council Looks at Amending Mobile Vendor Ordinance

ROCK SPRINGS — The Rock Springs City Council is hosting a public hearing to allow residents the opportunity to comment on several proposed amendments to the mobile vendor ordinance, which was previously passed in November of 2021.

The Council will meet on Tuesday, January 4, at 7 p.m. at City Hall. During the meeting, the Council will host two public hearings. One of those is for proposed changes to Article 13 of the Ordinances of the City of Rock Springs, to add language regarding mobile vendors.

According to the information in the Council packet, the city is looking to define and list mobile vendors as allowable uses within the City of Rock Springs.

The Planning and Zoning Department is asking the Council to consider amending Chapter 13 (Zoning) of the Ordinances of the City of Rock Springs as follows:
