SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Savannah's city manager has taken steps to allow the Girl Scouts of America to resume their cookie sales outside the historic home of the woman who founded the organization
nearly a century ago.
A complaint had halted the longtime practice of selling Girl Scout cookies on the public sidewalk outside the home of Juliette Gordon Low near a busy Savannah intersection.
However, Savannah City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney took action
Tuesday to allow the Girl Scouts to resume their cookie sales.
Savannah has a city ordinance banning peddling on public sidewalks. However, the city manager has the authority to make specific exemptions, which is what she did to allow cookie sales to resume at the founder's historic home.
