PENDLETON – The Pendleton Town Council conducted a second reading of its updated ordinance for peddlers, solicitors and transient merchants and could adopt the new rules as early as September.
While the group would normally conduct a vote after the second reading, the council decided to table the decision until a few additional details were ironed out – specifically, about whether photo identification cards would be issued.
“If you don’t have a photo ID, you just don’t know who you’re dealing with,” PTC member John Armington said. “I want to table this while you look into that.”
Pendleton Police Department Chief Marc Farrer said options on how to issue the permits were still being discussed.
“They will be issued some type of ID, but we don’t know if that will include a photo,” Farrer said. “The equipment needed to create those IDs can cost $1,500 or more.”
