Gainesville Officials Allowing More Food Truck Events
Gainesville, FL -- Good news for North Central Florida food lovers - more food truck rallies may be popping up in Gainesville.
Officials say the food truck culture has been springing up in Gainesville in the past years, so Thursday night, Gainesville city leaders approved an ordinance that will allow for more food truck events in and around downtown.
Under the old ordinance, a food truck event was only allowed once every 60 days. The new rules allow for one every 30 days in and around downtown Gainesville. The events are allowed to run from 5 P.M. to Midnight and the trucks must be removed within two hours after the event is over.
"I think we're going to have a lot more food truck rallies coming up in Gainesville, so get your stomachs ready," said Gainesville City Commistioner Lauren Poe.
The hosts must go through the City Manager's office and acquire a Special Events Permit before hosting the event. Also, the food truck event must take place on private property and setup time starts at 4 P.M.
