HARTSELLE, AL – City officials are reviewing a proposed ordinance that would allow food trucks to operate in non-residential areas.

City Attorney Larry Madison presented a “rough draft” of a food truck ordinance to the mayor and City Council on Tuesday night to study.

“It’s something that’s definitely not set in stone,” Madison said Wednesday afternoon.

Council President Kenny Thompson said some downtown merchants asked officials to consider allowing food trucks.

Thompson said no restaurant owners attended Tuesday night’s meeting.

“We had some downtown merchants there last night who were against it,” Thompson said Wednesday. “But some of the other downtown merchants are who asked for the food trucks.”

The council will put the proposal on a future council agenda to take public comments, Thompson said.
