SEYMOUR, IN – After more than a month’s delay, Seymour Common Council is scheduled to vote tonight on an ordinance to regulate when and where food trucks can do business in the city.
With the success of Food Truck Fridays in the Walnut Street Parking Lot, more and more mobile food businesses are wanting to set up and are seeking permits and guidance from city hall.
At the May 25 meeting of the board of public works and safety, members approved the operation of two more food trucks, The Lunch Box from Crothersville and Haywood BBQ of Freetown, from 5 to 8 p.m. on Fridays in the city-owned parking lot through the end of June. They join Flying Pink Pig BBQ and Nacho Momma’s Mexican food.
The proposed new ordinance requires food truck operators to obtain a $50 mobile food vehicle license from the city good for one year instead of a peddler and solicitors license, which are valid for a shorter period of time.
