On May 11, the County Board of Supervisors will consider an Ordinance (and take a final vote) that would amend Santa Barbara County Code to allow Microenterprise Home Kitchen Operations (MEHKOs) as a new type of food business in the county. MEHKOs are micro-scale restaurants operated by a resident in their private home kitchen.
