It seems that municipal governments everywhere are struggling with the changing paradigm of home-based businesses. Fauquier County in northern Virginia has some contrasting rules about what can be operated from home and what cannot. For example:
Avon and Mary Kay make-up cannot be sold out of a Fauquier home – not even on the Internet auction site, eBay. At the same time, an attorney may have clients visit for consultations…
No eBay? Say it isn’t so! Oh but the good news is that they are looking to change this to a more equitable arrangement. However in reading this article, I think you’ll sense the county is struggling a bit with the issue of how to regulate home-based businesses in their jurisdiction.
What about you? Is your county or municipality dealing with the growth of home-based businesses in a pro-active or reactive fashion?
