At this morning’s (Tuesday, March 24) Walton County Board of County Commissioners meeting, the board made the decision to suspend all beach vending permits due to COVID-19. This results in no beach vending allowed on all beaches in Walton County. This change is effective immediately, with education and voluntary compliance beginning today, and education and enforcement beginning tomorrow (March 25.)
Vendors who are non-compliant will be in violation of Walton County Municipal Code Chapter 22, Walton County Waterways and Beach Activities, Section 22-60 (b) and Florida Statute 256.36 – Emergency Management Powers of the Governor.
Enforcement of such will be implemented by Walton County Beach Code Enforcement and Walton County Sheriff’s Office.
At this time Beach Code Enforcement will not issue any new vending permits until further notice.
Please don’t hesitate to contact Walton County Beach Operations if you should have any questions: (850) 267-4578
