SAVANNAH, Georgia -- Savannah's city manager has granted an exemption for Girl Scouts to sell cookies outside the historic mansion of the woman who founded the organization nearly a century ago.

A complaint had halted the longtime practice of selling cookies on the public sidewalk outside the home of Juliette Gordon Low near a busy Savannah intersection. Savannah has an ordinance banning peddling on public sidewalks.

City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney used her power to make specific exemptions to city ordinance to allow the Scouts to continue their sales.

Low founded the Girl Scouts in Savannah in 1912.
