Board of Aldermen Receive Proposed Food Truck Ordinance

The New Albany Board of Aldermen have received a proposed ordinance on food trucks as they have gained popularity in the city limits.

The ordinance would not only limit the amount of food trucks that can operate in the city at once, but it would also set guidelines the businesses must follow to keep their permit.

The key points of the ordinance can be found below.

(a) Mobile vendors shall not conduct sales of any of their products or services except during the hours of 6:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m.

(b) Mobile vendors shall not conduct sales of any of their products or services except on private property zoned for commercial or industrial use in accordance with the city zoning ordinance or upon
public property with permission from the governmental entity having control of such public property.

(c) Mobile vendors shall not park in any area that blocks view of traffic, traffic signals or traffic signs nor in any area which would obstruct the free and safe passage of vehicles or pedestrians.

(d) Mobile vendors shall not park within ten (10) feet of a fire hydrant, within fifty (50) feet of a gas pump, fuel island, fuel tank fill port or venting equipment, or within twenty (20) feet of a
building or structure. The mobile vending vehicle or mobile pushcart must be attended at all times.
