Woman Will Keep Selling Girl Scout Cookies
HAZELWOOD, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis County woman is vowing that she and her daughters will keep selling Girl Scout cookies from their driveway despite a city warning to shut it down. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Carolyn Mills received a letter this month from the city of Hazelwood informing her of a complaint about the cookie stand.
The letter also warned that selling products from home violates city codes. Mills says she and her daughters, ages 14 and 16, aren't making any money off the sales. She says the girls are still about 300 boxes short of their goal of selling 2,000 boxes.
Hazelwood city spokesman, Tim Davidson, says a neighbor complained that the cookie booth caused excessive dog barking and unusually heavy traffic on the street.
