CALEXICO — Business resumed Saturday at Santo Tomas Swap Meet after it and the city of Calexico reached a settlement in the city’s lawsuit that had forced its closure in March.

The settlement allows operations to resume on a temporary basis, restricts vendor activity to select areas and sets deadlines for property owners to address reported building and fire code violations.
