EL PASO -- Do El Paso's flea markets need a face lift? If so, changes could be coming to the rules regulating how those flea markets operate around the city.
A spokesperson with the city's Environmental Services Department said the city plans to re-evaluate current ordinances regulating flea markets to see if any improvements or changes should be made.
A meeting is planned next week at City Hall to give the public a chance to provide input and ideas. The city is especially interested to hear from flea market property owners, vendors and flea market customers.
The issues the city wants to look at include flea market operator permits, vendor licenses, booth standards and bathroom facilities.
The public meeting will be held Wednesday, July 21st at 6:00 p.m. in the 10th floor conference room at City Hall.
