INDIANAPOLIS – An Indianapolis church is thanking supporters after the city shut down its youth groups sales of hot cocoa and cookies.
Fridays sales during the Circle of Lights ceremony on Monument Circle were halted as part of a sweep of unauthorized food vendors. A city ordinance requires permits for vendors during downtown events.
Christ Church Cathedral Rector Stephen Carlsen said Monday that the church hopes to be part of discussions about how public spaces can be used.
The group fell about $400 short of its normal sales. Indianapolis Downtown Inc. is making up the difference.
