Denton Considering Allowing Food Trucks Throughout City


A week after several food trucks had successful days at 35 Denton Music Festival, the City of Denton is closer to approving a City Ordinance to allow food trucks to operate inside the City limits, on a permanent basis.  The Ordinance change has been in discussion for several months and the proposed draft is ready for view and discussion. You can find the Ordinance here, its is scheduled for vote on April 3.  Prior to the vote, City Councilman, Kevin Roden would like to hear from anyone with an interest in the issue. A public hearing is set for Tuesday, March 20 at 3:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers and all are invited to attend. 

At this point, food trucks are only allowed to operate in Denton for special events, such as the 35 Denton  Music Festival. The University of North Texas campus is exempt from the City ordinance regarding food trucks and two trucks, The Angry Friar and Lee's Grilled Cheese operate on campus on a daily basis. 

If you would (or wouldn't) like to see food trucks through the City of Denton or have comments on the proposed Ordinance, please attend the public hearing or email Councilman Roden and let him know your thoughts.
