LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The Lake Charles City Council has approved an ordinance allowing small businesses to open up shop along North I-10 Beach.

The program is similar to the one that allows vendors to operate on the Lake Charles Promenade.

One business ready to set up shop is Watersports Unlimited LLC.

"We will provide family affordable rentals such as jet skis, kayaks, canoes, water trampolines - just a whole array of water sport activities so that more people can get involved and take advantage of the lake," explained Immanuel Friddle, of Watersports Unlimited LLC.

Friddle expects to open within the next couple of months.

Under the program, all vendors will have to renew their agreement with the city every 90 days.
