LOUISVILLE, Ky. —
A new proposed ordinance would dictate where food trucks can and can’t park in Louisville.
Metro Council members say they are trying to help businesses thrive and do better while food truck owners say this ordinance could kill their business. Currently food trucks can reserve spots downtown, as long as they pay the parking meters.
The proposed ordinance says public works will establish stationary vending zones throughout Louisville metro. Vendors who want to use those areas, will have to have a permit.
Earlier this year, food trucks owners won a lawsuit that overturned an ordinance that mandated the trucks be 150 feet away from restaurants.
The Metro Council meeting is set to take place Thursday night at 6 p.m.
