Keep on truckin': food vendor spots open up

The city is calling on anyone who is interested in taking one of the nine vacant spaces for the upcoming 2015 street food vending season.

Four cart spaces and five truck spaces are opening up after the existing vendors retired or moved on to other ventures.

Proposals will be accepted until Dec. 15. The selection panel will then consider things like the applicant’s proposed menu, business plan, vending experience and overall contribution to the local food scene before making a final decision.

That decision will be made early in 2015 and the successful applicants will be able to open for business by May.

More information for potential vendors can be found on the city’s website.
