BUFFALO, NY -- A Mobile Food Truck Vendor ordinance has finally been adopted by the Buffalo City Council.

The legislation passed by a vote of seven to one.

The council has been working with food truck operators and restaurant owners for the past seven months to craft the agreement.  Trucks must follow city parking regulations and will be restricted from parking closer than 100 feet from brick and mortar restaurants.

Food Trucks will also be charged a $1,000 yearly license fee to operate in the city.  South Buffalo Councilmember Mickey Kearns was the only lawmaker to vote against the legislation because he though that fee was too high.

The legislation now goes to Mayor Byron Brown's desk.  He's expected to approve it.
