food carts


On Thursday, the City Council voted to lift a decades-old ban on food carts with an ordinance that allows vendors to get a license and sell legally the 50,000 meals a day they're now selling in violation of the ban. To operate legally, vendors must pay $350 for a license and pay sales taxes on what they sell.

  East Peoria is looking to allow food carts in its new downtown area this spring.  Peoria Public Radio’s Alex Rusciano reports the idea is to boost more foot-traffic in the city’s new Levee District: East Peoria City Staff proposes allowing six food carts around the Civic Plaza area that includes the new library, meeting space and potential future city hall.
