McKinney City Council amended the city’s code of ordinances related to temporary uses at an Oct. 17 meeting, making it easier for food trucks and food truck parks to operate in the city. The amendment includes information regarding permitting, location of the food truck or parks, and hours of operation.
Under the ordinance, food trucks may engage in sales operations from 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Food truck courts, which are defined as a property used or developed to accommodate one or more food trucks as the primary use of the property, can engage in sales operations from 7 a.m.-midnight.
Exceptions to this ordinance include a “special event that is properly licensed pursuant to a special event permit issued by the city,” such as if the food truck is a vendor at a permitted farmers’ market or is located on public property at the request of the property owner.
