HOBART, IN – A food service truck ordinance proposed in Hobart doesn’t have enough ingredients for some.
The council voted 4-3 last week to deny an ordinance that would have required food truck operators to obtain permits from the city and pay $100 in fees before they would be allowed to locate on private properties, including outside of businesses.
Councilmen John Brezik, Dave Vinzant, Pete Mendez and Monica Wiley cast the votes against the measure.
Brezik said he isn’t opposed to food trucks, but he believes there are “too many unanswered variables” that have prevented him from supporting the measure at this time.
He said the ordinance needs more clarification and direction regarding inspections of food, where food would be prepared and how it would be stored.
Vinzant’s concerns about the ordinance involve potential safety issues.
