At the beginning of 2016, a growing group of cities across the country are taking up the idea of bring food trucks to their towns. The good news is that most of these cities are welcoming the mobile food industry.

OXFORD, MS – Being known for its eclectic range of restaurants, Oxford officials are considering an ordinance to help manage food trucks looking to set up shop in Oxford to sell on the go.

Assistant City Planner Ben Requet presented the ordinance to the Oxford Board of Aldermen Tuesday for its first official reading. A public hearing will be held in two weeks and the aldermen are expected to vote on the ordinance on March 2.

“We’ve started receiving some questions from residents as to food trucks, what our rules and regulations are, and I discovered, we don’t really have much on the books,” Requet said. “I’ve spent about a half a year researching this and talking to people in the industry and I believe it’s a good ordinance. It’s not overly restrictive but it puts in some regulations.”
