Teens Now Have to Get Business Licences to Mow Lawns

In a city in Alabama called Gardendale, youths who go out to mow lawns this year have been threatened by officials and landscaping companies that they have to get a business licence before starting, which brings in $110 for the city for each licence.

Adults who also cut lawns over the summer have made complaints about teens making money cutting a few lawns, and the mayor of the town, Stan Hogeland, said that people must have a business licence when operating within the city, and that he would like to have something added to the books that would be more appropriate for teens making summer cash, like "maybe a temporary licence ... that targets teenagers." He said that going after teens was not a priority, and that he wanted to find a way to deal with the situation favorably.
