San Diego City Council backs multi-million dollar crackdown on street vendors

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diego is following through with plans to strengthen its one-year-old crackdown on street vending, a local phenomena that became a widespread public nuisance during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In order to enforce street-vending ordinances, the city will hire nearly four-dozen new park rangers to both monitor street vending and protect San Diego’s local beaches, parks, and other communal areas.

This will cost over $4 million.

Councilmember Joe LaCava joined KUSI’s Rafer Weigel to discuss the controversy surrounding this cost.
