    Aside from Danny Glidewell? (thanks for participating Danny)

    OUR BEACHES don't belong to vendors, they belong to the PUBLIC! Give us back OUR beaches!

    The entire front row of vendor chairs are completely unoccupied taking up space for the visitors who drive the economy in Walton County.

    Ridiculous!

    Just because they are empty doesn’t mean they are not rented. I could be wrong but I thought they did away with ghost sets and all sets that are out are reserved and paid for.

    If the truth were told those beach vendors are not grandfathered into the term "customary use"!

    The only activities that the customary use ordinance authorized in customary use areas were walking on the beach, sitting on the beach, using a beach umbrella seven feet wide or less, sunbathing, picnicking, fishing, swimming, or surfing off the beach, using surfing or fishing equipment and "building sand creations." Vending not included. But I guess that the ordinance is now void, those limitations are moot.

    My point was that historically going back years, customary use did not include beach vendors. Those actually became an issue under C. Jones because her son is a vendor and it was included in ordinances the current BCC created.

    Vending is in the Beach Activities Ordinance but was not included as one of the uses allowed by the public in the Customary Use Ordinance. The CU ordinance didn't apply to public beach access property, just privately-owned beach property. Confusing, I know!

    Clearing up any confusion: it’s nepotism

    I know I would rather bring my own chair or just sit on a towel. That beach equipment is pricey!

    I assumed that was a public beach or a private beach with a contracted vendor. I would think the vendors are smart enough to not screw with private beaches after July 1st.

    I also think that the beach vendor should be responsible for picking what trash or other items left if any by renter of chairs...as a goodwill gesture at the very least.i have witnessed the vendors employees step right on trash as they remove chairs and umbrellas at end of day. And yes I get my old a.. Up and pick up

    Indeed! Count me as one that thinks vendors on the beach has gone way too far. Fighting over space? Sofas and big screen TVs??? Generators and karaoke machines??!! Lights, Bonfires, Daiquiri Machines, trampling the dunes - it gets worse and worse.

    Come on people this has to stop. If we can't get them off the beach then they need to be trained, licensed, and pay a portion of profits to the citizens of Walton County. They should take care of the beach, help people, be good representatives of our community.

    Vending is prohibited on private beach in the Beach Activities Ordinance UNLESS the upland owner has given written authorization.
