BOUQUETS & BRICKBATS

Brickbats to the St. Augustine City Commission

Posted

Brickbats to the St. Augustine City Commission for voting to ban street performers from another area of the historic city. In a unanimous vote, the commission approved an ordinance banning street performers on Hypolita Street, from St. George Street to Avenida Menendez. The ordinance says the performers create a “visual blight” damaging the economic interests of merchants who pay property taxes. Visitors to St. Augustine enjoy the street performers, who have been part of the fun of visiting the Ancient City for decades.
