The League City City Council discussed possible changes to a food truck related ordinance concerning special events and proximity to brick and mortar commercial properties at a workshop meeting March 28.

Possible changes to the current ordinance discussed at the meeting included increasing the annual license fee for food trucks, limiting special events to 72 hours max duration, registration with League City and the possibility of food truck parks.

“I don’t give too much value to the argument that [food trucks] are stealing business from our brick and mortar, but I certainly don’t want to give them an advantage that our brick and mortar don’t have,” Council Member Chad Tressler said.

Following the workshop meeting, city staff will prepare suggestions for the council to take action on during a future session.


The League City City Council approved a resolution authorizing city staff to participate in the "Regional Strategic Transportation Fund" with a future interlocal agreement with the Houston-Galveston Area Council at the March 28 regular council meeting.

Approval of the resolution could mean, pending acceptance, that the federal government will fully fund the Landing Boulevard extension project in exchange for the city taking on other smaller local projects, according to the agenda item.

In other news, the council voted to not make changes to the definition of sidewalks in League City’s legal code, despite previously approving the first reading of the item 5-3 on Feb. 14.

“State law is pretty clear, you can’t block the sidewalk at all.” Mayor Nick Long said with confirmation from the city attorney. “My problem is generally we don’t pass laws to nullify state law.”
