Bill's Newscast: Foodtrucks

22 October 2018  

Communities are limited in their ability to prohibit food vendors. But they can adopt reasonable regulations.

The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors meets with the Planning and Zoning Commission at 9 tomorrow morning to discuss important issues.

On the joint study session agenda are a department overview and accomplishments, updates on the building code, addressing, food trucks, special events and wireless ordinances; attached and detached guest homes and secondary medical variances. The meeting will be held in the County Administrative Services building on Fair Street in Prescott. The last time the Yavapai County Planning and Zoning Commission met was on July 19th. All meetings in the following months have been cancelled. At noon today, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors meets with Facilities Director Kenny Van Keuren to discuss capital improvement project priorities. The meeting will be held in the Public Works building, Conference Room B on Commerce Drive.

Mobile food truck vendors could be facing regulations in Prescott.

State Statutes restrict and limit the City’s ability to prohibit or ban the operation of mobile food vendors. However, the City has some authority to adopt reasonable regulations for this operation. Under a draft ordinance that will be discussed by City Council at 1 tomorrow afternoon, all operators would be required to get City business licenses, Yavapai County health inspection permits and food handler cards. All mobile food trucks would have to comply with fire and safety codes and show proof of inspections by the Fire Department. There are other regulations for operations on private property, City right of way and City owned property that’s not in the right of way. The Council meeting will be held at City Hall on South Cortez Street.
