Monessen, a city in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, welcomes food trucks after city guides passed an official ordinance on food truck operators to operate in the metropolitan area.
“There weren’t any laws that prevented food trucks, but there weren’t any laws that stipulated guidelines or specifically allowed them,” Mayor Matt Shorraw told CBS Pittsburgh.
The law requires food truck operators to get a $ 100 annual permit after a one-time registration fee of $ 50.
Food trucks can be deployed on any public street or public property in the city center from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. City officials hope that food trucks will bring more traffic to the city center.
A Food Truck Festival is planned for Saturday 5th June in Monessen City Park.
