LOCK HAVEN — Mobile food trucks are welcome — as long as they follow the rules.

City Council is spelling out rules for food trucks in a new ordinance.


The city is requiring no permits or fees, but food vending businesses must have a valid state license.

Under the proposed regulations, food trucks must stay at least 500 feet away from schools between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., and 150 feet away from the principal customer entrance to any restaurant. Trucks also must stay at least 500 feet away from any vendor event that is organized, sponsored or sanctioned by the city, unless the truck is a vendor at the event.

No trucks may vend in a park or on city property. No tables, chairs, standing counters or similar pieces are allowed on public property or within the public right-of-way. Dinnerware and serving containers must be break-resistant. A waste bin and a recycle bin must be provided.

Vending must stop between 2:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m.

The fine for violating the rules is at least $250 and no more than $1,000.

Council may suspend the rules for up to 10 days.

And, council approved the regulations at its meeting Monday. The regulations will come back to council for a second vote, as required, before they become official.
