Vernal City Council is close to approving an amendment to the municipal code that will allow for family farm businesses in Vernal City limits. Consideration of amending the code arose when growing operation Utah 40 Farms applied for a business license to sell pumpkins and items from their garden from their residential property. It was found that city code did not allow for a business where the operation and sales took place outside the walls of the home itself. City Council expressed support of the proposed ordinance that will allow for urban farming operations during Wednesday’s meeting and no public comment was made during the Public Hearing portion of the meeting. The Planning Commission plan to meet and discuss the ordinance again and it is expected the item will be before the council for approval next month.
