PETOSKEY, MI – Possibilities for updating Petoskey’s mobile vending regulations will be up for discussion at a city planning commission meeting today, Thursday, as will McLaren Northern Michigan hospital’s long-term plans for facilities and a proposed city parks and recreation master plan.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the community room of Petoskey City Hall, 101 E. Lake St.

In early September, the first Old Town Emmet Food Truck Rally was well-received and attracted a large crowd. Based on the success of the event, planning commissioners believe it might be time to revisit mobile vending regulations.

As of now, the planning commission is only discussing the issue of mobile vending and public input would be needed before any changes could happen, according to city documents.

City officials receive many calls from people wanting to operate mobile units, such as food trucks, at the waterfront area and downtown. Under a city ordinance, mobile vendors can only operate in public places in conjunction with a community event, according to city documents.
