SACRAMENTO-

The Sacramento City Council, Tuesday night, approved an ordinance expanding mobile food truck options.

The ordinance removes the 30 minute time limits on food truck parking, paving the way for extended vending in one place.

Highlights of the ordinance also include the following standards:

Vendors must keep sidewalks clear, and keep areas around their food trucks free of trash.

They must provide county-approved toilet and hand-washing facilities for employees.

Food trucks must be 50 feet from intersections, 400 feet from other vendors, and 100 feet from restaurants.
