APPROVED: Proposal to ban food trucks in 11th Aldermanic District is now officially on the books
MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee Alderman Joe Dudzik says he wants to ban food trucks in his district. It’s a proposal the Public Safety Committee approved Thursday, January 29th.
Food trucks are now banned in Milwaukee’s 11th Aldermanic District.
The law goes line-by-line, banning trucks on every major street and side street in the district.
It bans selling anything from parked vehicles, but the law targets food trucks.
Dudzik says the problem is traffic in intersections.
“You put a panel truck and a couple people pulling over to have a hamburger or hot dog — whatever they want, sushi, became a real problem,” Dudzik said.
Dudzik says food trucks might still be allowed with special permission. They would have to contact the alderman to change the ordinance to allow specific locations.
