South Carolina town seeks to regulate food trucks
The Surfside Beach, South Carolina town council passed the first reading of an ordinance to allow food trucks during town-sponsored events, according to WBTW-TV.
If passed, the ordinance would supersede an existing law that allows mobile vendors at the seasonal Farmers Market.
The new ordinance would require food trucks to maintain documents from the health department, have a Surfside Beach business license or event vendors permit. It also gives event leaders the freedom to limit where trucks park and how many trucks are allowed. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited.
