City Council takes action on food trucks

By Martha Stoffel

O’FALLON – The City Council approved on first reading the amended ordinance regarding food trucks in O’Fallon at their meeting Monday night.  

A special event permit will be required for a food truck to operate in the city of O’Fallon. The council will review each event permit and will be able to put in place any specific restrictions (location, time, date, etc.) necessary at that time and on a case-by-case basis. The food truck will also be required to get an annual mobile food truck license through the city that will cost $125, as well as a $25 annual food license. The ordinance was approved 10-1, Ward 2 Alderman Bob Kueker voted no and Kevin Hagarty, Mark Morton and Matt Smallheer were not in attendance.
