After vetoing a previous plan passed by the city council, Mayor Mitch Landrieu appears to be on board with a revised ordinance regulating food trucks in the city.

According to the mayor’s office, the proposed ordinance will cover all mobile food vendors no matter whether the vehicle is pushed, pulled, pedaled or driven.

The plan would reduce areas where the mobile food vendors are prohibited from operating as well as do away with a restriction preventing them from operating within certain distances of restaurants.
