Food truck ordinance likely stalled for good

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - An ordinance that would allow and regulate mobile food vendors is likely stalled for good after Mayor Jamie Mayo and restaurant owners in southern Monroe have voiced their opposition.

The city council failed to introduce the ordinance during its meeting Tuesday night. Mayo said even if it eventually passes the council, he will veto it.

The ordinance by Council Vice Chairman Ray Armstrong would have allowed mobile food vendors to set up throughout the city and sell food.

Ronnie Traylor was the only small business owner to speak in favor of the ordinance. He said owning a mobile food unit was a dream of his and said competition was part of the game.
