Food Truck Regulations Move Forward in Libertyville

Libertyville is moving forward with regulations that would include where and when food truck and mobile vendors could operate their businesses in the village, according to the Chicago Tribune

The proposed regulations would require mobile vendors to complete a background and would increase a annual permit fee to $500, according to a December village board packet.

In addition, the new rules would not allow vendors to sell  in residential areas between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., would limit sales at one site to eight hours, limit each vendor to four sales per zoning lot per twelve-month period, according to village documents.

The regulations were first brought up last summer after more mobile vendors started operating in the village, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"Over the past few years, mobile vending of both foods and good has surged in popularity locally and nationally," according to the village board packet. 

The Chicago Tribune reports the regulations have been reported to the village board and will next need approval from the planning commission, according to the Chicago Tribune. The plan commission next meets on Jan. 27, according to the village of Libertyville website.

So did Libertyville just outlaw the ice cream truck? Sounds like it to me…
