Texas town explores food truck regulations
The Allen, Texas, city council received an overview of possible food truck regulations Tuesday from Lee Battle, assistant director of planning and development, according to the Allen American.
Under the proposed regulations, food trucks would operate in three different ways: as temporary vendors for special events; as an accessory to an existing business; and as a permanent site, such as a food truck park. The city currently has no permanent food truck sites.
Trucks would be restricted to private property and would be required to obtain a temporary food vendor permit and a health permit. Food truck sites could also operate at city parks and facilities with permission from the parks and recreation department.
