EGADS... when (if ever) will govt. (YES, OUr Local Yokals) leave private enterprise ALONE... We don't need more "Regulations).. It is not the business of the City to interfere to "Equalize" competition. If it is, perhaps the Council should put a huge tax on Costco/Walmart/Target... cuz they can sell cheaper than small businesses.... STUPID.... Get out of our lives. People will spend their money where they not only get prices, but also service, ependablity, and friendly personnel... Leave the vendors alone.

Disgusted with Govt. Interference.
