Hillsborough passed an ordinance allowing food trucks to operate within town limits

The town of Hillsborough passed an amendment to their ordinance that will allow food trucks to operate at a meeting Monday night.

The ordinance was passed unanimously after holding an unattended public hearing at the same meeting.

A total of ten food trucks will be allowed to operate at the same time, but none will be allowed to work at the town’s historic district.

The food trucks will also have to abide by the town’s food and beverage sales tax, which levies one percent of off prepared foods and beverages.

Vendors who wish to apply for a permit will be able to do so starting Jan. 1, town officials said.
