Dear Custodian of Records:
I request that a copy of documents containing the following information be provided to me:
● Number of Public Health Operating licenses (people that applied for a county health permit for a mobile food cart per the Safe Sidewalk Vending Act) issued in 2019 from January 1, 2019 - to most recent date available
● Breakdown of Public Health Operating licenses by type of product sold
● Genders, ethnicities and ages of licensed street vendors in 2019
● Information about how much the LA County permit program taxes street vendors.
In order to help to determine my status to assess fees, you should know that I am a student
journalist affiliated with Pepperdine Graphic Media and this request is made as part of news
gathering and not for commercial use.
Disclosure of the requested information to me is in the public interest because it is likely to
contribute significantly to public understanding of the Safe Sidewalk Vending Act. Thank you for
your consideration of this request.
