CRESTWOOD • Crestwood has food truck licensing in place for the first time, allowing operations for up to three days a year for a $10 fee, or the entire year for a $35.
Adopted by the Board of Aldermen on Tuesday night, the ordinance was written with the encouragement of the St. Louis Food Truck Association, which is co-sponsoring a food truck event in April on the site of the former Crestwood Plaza.
Food trucks will be allowed in all but residential areas, unless acting as a caterer for a special event, are limited to 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., and may not provide customer seating.
About 40 or more food trucks are expected for the April 16 Food Truck Party at the Plaza, which will also feature a band and other attractions, partially funded by the association.
Oliveri, 49, has been with the department for 28 years. The department now has 23 total employees.
