DURHAM, NC – Durham city leaders could adopt new rules for popular food trucks today.

The city council meets tonight at 7 p.m. to decide on the new rules.

The current proposal would limit where food trucks can set up shop keeping at least 50 feet between themselves and the main entrance or outdoor dining area of any restaurant.

Planners also considered proposing a buffer for the Durham Farmers’ Market and other “special events,” but dropped that idea after it drew complaints at a July public hearing.

If the new rules pass, food truck vendors will also have to register their vehicles with the planning department and pay a $10 fee.
