A Local Business Tax Receipt and Vendor’s Permit  are required as per Section 250.1201, City Ordinance. Please note:
  • Food Truck operators that have permits renewed before Feb. 2, 2015 will have a grace period for the new process until time to renew their permit again.
  • Vending in a public park requires separate permission and application through the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department.
  • Vending at Special Events requires the Food Truck operator to provide a copy of their Vendor Permit to the event organizer.
  • The rules regarding distance, signage, and hours differ for dispensing Downtown and elsewhere in the City.
  • Vending without the required permits can result in costly citations. We’re here to help! Check out our contact sheet for help with the process.
