The council passed and adopted an ordinance regulating solicitors, pushcarts and mobile vendors — including food trucks — at its meeting Tuesday at City Hall. The city’s previous ordinance regulating those businesses hadn’t been updated since 1924.
The council’s ordinance committee started looking at the issue in June, soliciting input from owners of food trucks and brick-and-mortar restaurants as well as other members of the public.
