LOUISVILLE, Ky. — It's back to committee once again for an ordinance that would impact food trucks. Metro Council voted to send the ordinance back to the Public Works Committee for further review.
That same committee recommended the ordinance for disapproval earlier this month.
The proposal has gone through several amendments and now focuses on things like licensing, limiting generator noise, and some parking restrictions.
Leah Stewart, the President of the Louisville Food Truck Association, spoke to the council about her concerns.
“While we acknowledge every municipality has the right to pass laws to protect public safety and welfare. This ordinance is designed to make food trucks work harder and more expensive. The language in this ordinance is unnecessarily confusing, terms are undefined, and we believe certain provisions violate the consent decree,” Stewart said.
Heading back to committee, those involved said they hope there will now be meaningful discussions on the ordinance.
