Frederick City Expands Food Truck Operations

Officials say it will help support the industry as it recovers  from the affects of the COVID-19 pandemic.



Frederick, Md (KM) A temporary expansion of mobile food truck operations in Frederick was approved last week by the Board of Aldermen.

In addition to some residential areas, these trucks  can operate on privately-owned non-residential properties with the permission of the property owners. It also expands the hours of operation to 9:00 AM until 9:00 PM daily.. The food trucks can operate during all or part of that 12-hour period.

Also, a mobile food truck cannot operate on more than one residential property on the same block of a street on one day. Food trucks cannot operate in the Frederick Town Historic District except for the Carroll Creek Linear Park.

The City says these changes to the ordinance will help support the industry which is recovering from the affects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Officials say this ordinance will remain in affect until Governor  Hogan removes the State of Emergency, or October 31st, which ever comes first.
