A food vendor ordinance is headed to a public hearing on Thursday in Ridgefield. The cost of permits and requirements for background checks would be updated. Three ice cream trucks that travel around town, the hot dog cart on Main Street and another location on Route 7 on the south end of town would be grandfathered in.
The draft ordinance would allow food vendors to cater private events, and to set up in public locations for events authorized by the Parks and Rec Department or sponsored by recognized charitable organizations.
The public hearing is at 7:30pm Thursday in town hall. A town meeting will be held at a future date.
