PUTNAM, CT – A new vendor ordinance is coming to town meeting to allow food trucks and carts in Simonzi Park.
The ordinance is meant to clarify a previous ordinance that made it unclear where the mobile food locations could do business. However, it also scales back the areas. The town meeting will be held Aug. 14.
“We’re really finishing a process that was started well over a year ago,” said Deputy Mayor Alma Morey.
The General Government Subcommittee of the Board of Selectmen, which Morey leads, sent a new version to the Recreation Commission, which also approved the changes, and then passed it along to the Board of Selectmen. The selectmen sent the ordinance to town meeting.
The need to revisit the ordinance has come up because of confusion over where mobile food vendors could be located and concern from some of the brick and mortar eateries in town.
