WINONA, MN – Winona is examining how to loosen regulation on food trucks in town, which likely will lead to more possible locations and hours.

In a meeting prior to the City Council meeting Monday, council members discussed proposed options, which include allowing food trucks along East Riverfront Street and in the parking lots on either end of Levee Park, and at the Kiwanis Shelter on Prairie Island.

Currently food trucks are allowed at Lake Park by the band shell and softball fields, at city events where organizers are allowed to have vendors, on private property, and downtown on Third Street from Kansas Street to Johnson Street.

Food trucks on private commercial areas or institutional property can be open during business hours of the entity, and downtown food trucks have to operate a brick-and-mortar restaurant elsewhere in the city.

Council members also discussed proposals that included eliminating restrictions on location within the downtown area and expanding open hours.
