Hermiston City Council Creates Rules for Mobile Food Vendors

Posted: Updated:

HERMISTON, Ore. -- Mobile food vendors in the City of Hermiston have some new rules to abide by.

On Monday, the Hermiston City Council unanimously supported the creation of rules for mobile food vendors in the city at their meeting.The ordinance only regulates operations with an Oregon Class II, III, or IV Mobile Food Unit License.

The new rule requires that vendors must move from their location every day, be at least 400 feet from a restaurant, have their locations approved for safety, and meet basic site requirements.

The legislation finishes a discussion which began in January after a proposal from the city's Business Advisory Committee that the mobile food vendors be subject to a license. 

All mobile food vendors in Hermiston will now have to obtain a license to operate by April 1, 2014.

A full copy of the new rules can be found here.
