The good news is Spokane approved a food truck ordinance to allow food trucks, the bad part…truck owners need to get permission slips from other business owners in areas they park.
The Spokane City Council voted 7-0 Monday night to adopt two ordinances regulating food trucks within city limits.
In May, the city began looking into regulating the growing industry in Spokane. They drafted an ordinance but some food truck owners weren’t happy with what they came up with.
The first draft of the ordinance called for a mobile food vending permit, the cost $40 plus $10 for each additional location. It also required truck owners to get permission from businesses if they planned to operate within 75 feet of them.
After hearing from truck owners, the city set up a meeting between all parties involved.
They group made up of the Greater Spokane Food Truck Association, restaurant owners and the city decided to amend the proposal.
The ordinance that passed, requires a $60 permit fee, and mobile food vendors must have permission from established businesses within 50 feet.
