Ripon council looks at park use, mobile food vendor rules

The City of Ripon parks will soon have new signs as related to the general rules specified by the municipal code.

Recreation Director Kye Stevens recently noticed that “jump houses” and “golf” were not addressed in the current park rules.

At Tuesday’s Ripon City Council meeting, he’s scheduled to seek direction from elected leaders on the “General Rules for City Parks” municipal code on “permitting certain jump houses corresponding with a park or facility rental under established guidelines and language that prohibits golf in parks,” said Stevens in his staff report.

Council could direct any such changes to be addressed by the Parks and Recreation Commission.

This item and others will be handled during the 6 p.m. open session in the Council Chambers, 259 N. Wilma Ave.

  • Council members could look to provide staff with the direction on how to proceed with amendments to municipal code on Mobile Food Vendors with the City of Ripon.
  • They’ll also address the internet reliability in Ripon with a representative from Charter Communications.
  • Council could authorize staff to continue efforts in securing a grant for the South San Joaquin County Irrigation District’s Surface Water Supply Project.
