Mayor Menino gives pushcart vendors 60-day extension

Operators sue over plan to end renewals

Mayor Thomas M. Menino is giving a 60-day extension to street vendors in Downtown Crossing after the pushcart operators fought back with a lawsuit and online petition to let them stay in business.

The complaint filed Monday against the City of Boston and the Downtown Boston Business Improvement District accuses officials of breaking promises to let the pushcarts operate through this year and seeks an injunction to prevent them from getting kicked out.
