VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - There will be some big changes in the coming weeks for mobile food trucks who serve the Hahira community.

City council members approved the food truck ordinance that now restricts mobile food trucks from being able to serve in the city every day.

Trucks will be able to serve in Hahira for seven consecutive days after applying for a permit, then that truck would have to wait 30 more days before reapplying for another permit.

That request can take up to two days.

"We hope that businesses will be able to take advantage of the opportunities that are afforded to them in the ordinance and work within the confines of what's been defined," said City Manager Jonathan Sumner.

The decision to approve the food truck ordinance came days after the Greater Lowndes Planning Commission denied the recommendation that was presented to the board.

The ordinance includes where mobile food trucks can set up and mentions noise restrictions as well.
