2 girls told to close lemonade stand for lack of permit

OVERTON, Texas (AP) – Two Texas girls whose lemonade stand was shut down because they lacked a permit will instead offer the drink for free.

Television station KLTV reports that 8-year-old Andria Green and her 7-year-old sister, Zoey, will take only donations for lemonade Saturday in Overton, about 120 miles east of Dallas.

A police officer on Monday approached the stand, which offered lemonade for 50 cents and “kettle korn” for $1.

In patrol-car video, the officer can be heard asking the girls’ mother, Sandi Evans, for a permit. She says she wasn’t aware they needed one.

A family friend went to City Hall to get one. Authorities waived the $150 fee, but said health department officials needed to inspect the stand.

Overton’s police chief says police must follow state health guidelines.
