City Council Approves Mobile Food Vendors in Jasper at Meeting

(NNDC)  Jasper – Foodies in the community will have a new option available to them.  During the Wednesday evening City Council meeting the Council approved Mobile Food  Vendors for the City of Jasper. The ordinance will go into effect on Tuesday, October 1,2019.  Mayor Vonderheide believes the ordinance is going to provide the community access to  diverse food sources. He also mentioned that food trucks are a low-cost entry into the  local scene. “If they establish themselves well with a food truck, then they sometimes  have a brick and mortar, and they’ll invest in the community – especially if the market’s there for them.”

For those interested in being a vendor a few steps need to take place before setting up.  Vendors will need to obtain a mobile food permit from the Dubois County Health  Department and the City of Jasper. You can obtain the application from each entity’s website.  Please join us at our annual Touch-A-Truck event on Saturday, October 19th. We are  excited to feature food trucks at this year’s event. The event will be from 11am-The event will be from 11am-1pm at  Schroeder Complex.
