    Here is a good place to get the information (current as it is)
    go to: http://www.countyofnapa.org
    search for: FAQ October 2011
    look for: Food Policy FAQ, October 2011 Version
    its a PDF file and has a wealth of information that isn't easy to find anywhere else. Don't try and follow the ordinace numbers, as they don't match up. Oh well, it can't be perfect.
