RENO, Nev. (AP) - County health department officials say they're working on a permit solution for two girls whose lemonade stand was shut down at the Reno-Tahoe Open earlier this month.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports (http://on.rgj.com/15rq2Lo) 12-year-old Emma Farrell and 14-year-old Alex Farrell were cited for selling food without a permit at the event.
Washoe County Health District spokesman Phil Ulibarri says the department doesn't normally regulate children's lemonade stands but this one was operating inside the Montreux Golf and Country Club where the tournament was taking place.
Ulibarri says other vendors paid event fees to set up shop inside, so the department cited the girls and their parents after receiving complaints.
Ulibarri says the health department is working to get the girls permits for future events, which will cost $38.
