South Bend's food truck ordinance passes with unanimous vote
With a unanimous vote, food trucks can get rolling into South Bend.
The South Bend Common Council heard public comments about the proposed ordinance, which clears up regulations for food trucks, Monday night, Sept. 14. It passed with a 9-0 vote, the South Bend Tribune reports.
Among the regulations established in the ordinance, according to the South Bend Tribune, are:
- Owners must have liability insurance
- Trucks must pass regular health and fire inspections
- An annual licensing fee must be paid
- Trucks can’t block the way and can only park for four areas in one spot in downtown South Bend
The ordinance has been in the works since early this summer.
As it stood before the ordinance, there were no laws in South Bend that set rules for what food trucks could and couldn’t do, according to previous Flavor 574 reporting.
