Council introduces bill to restrict food truck operations

Members of the Baltimore City Council introduced a bill that could restrict how food truck operators currently run their business operations during a council meeting Tuesday. 

Under the proposal, mobile vending zones would be created to allow food trucks to operate. The proposal would also prohibit  these businesses from using metered parking and would make the trucks operate 300 feet from either a restaurant or similar competitive business.

During the meeting, the bill was met with mixed reviews, including opposition from many city food truck owners.

Currently, food truck vendors are allowed to serve food downtown at any legal parking space. 

The proposal would also have effect on other mobile businesses, including mobile fashion trucks.

Talks on the bill will continue on March 4.
