Title

An Ordinance of the City Commission creating Chapter 14 "Businesses”, Article VII "Mobile Food trucks”, providing for severability clause, repealer provision, codification, and providing for an effective date.

(Sponsored by Mayor Lago)

Body

Section 509.102, Florida Statutes preempts the regulation of mobile food dispensing vehicles (synonymous with, and hereinafter referred to as “mobile food trucks”) involving licenses, registrations, permits, and fees to the state. The law further states that a municipality, county, or other local governmental entity may not prohibit mobile food trucks from operating within the entirety of the entity’s jurisdiction. The City currently allows mobile food trucks to conduct business within the City in connection with special events. The City Commission wishes to amend the City Code to further allow mobile food trucks to operate within the City under certain circumstances and within specific zoning districts in accordance with section 509.102, Florida Statutes.
