The department received a Petition on June 26, 2009 for a routine Variance for subparagraph 61C-1.002(5)(a)2., Florida Administrative Code, from Vend PSL located in Port St. Lucie. The above referenced F.A.C. addresses the requirement that a mobile food dispensing vehicle be a vehicle that is otherwise movable.

Any violation of the variance is the equivalent of a violation of the Rule and may result in a rescission of the variance and subject the Petitioner to disciplinary sanctions as enumerated in Section 509.261, Florida Statutes.
