NATCHEZ, Miss. – The Board of Aldermen has begun the process for regulating food trucks. With the recent influx of these restaurants on wheels, city officials will consider crafting a new ordinance specifically for them. City Planning Director Rico Giani noted it’s actually illegal for food trucks to operate on city streets. They can only be on private property. Giani said city regulations currently contain no standards for food trucks to go by. No mention is made, for example, of fire-suppression equipment, signage and proximity to established restaurants.

Giani said a proposed food truck ordinance will be the subject of public hearings and presented to the Natchez Planning Commission and Board of Aldermen for adoption. | © 2014 | All Rights Reserved
