State Senator Jose Peralta will introduce legislation this week that would require local health departments to implement a letter-grading system for street vendors, similar to the current restaurant grading system.
Ever wonder about the cleanliness of your favorite street food cart? State Senator Jose Peralta is proposing that street vendors be forced to post health department letter grades like the ones in restaurant windows.
New York City restaurants get letter grades and now the city food carts may get the same. State Sen. Jose Peralta (D-Queens) is introducing legislation to require posted letter health grades for street vendors.
“State Senator Jose Peralta and Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas rallied with community members in Astoria on Monday in support of the New York Family Leave Act, which would extend unpaid, job-protected maternity leave.”
… Today, prostitution and counterfeiting industries are tucked alongside the Mexican restaurants, Dominican bakeries, Colombian boutiques and the nightclubs where men — many of them new immigrants working to feed families left behind in their homelands — can buy the company of a woman by paying $2 for a dance.
… (Peralta) is also calling for a task force, similar to the one that decimated crime there in the ’90s, to be reconvened.
