JASPER, Ind. (WEHT) – Foodies in the community will now have a new option to get their grub on.

On Wednesday, City Council approved Mobile Food Vendors for the City of Jasper.

The ordinance will go into effect on October 1st.

Mayor Dean Vonderheide says he thinks the ordinance will give the community access to diverse food sources. He also said food trucks are low-cost.

“If they establish themselves well with a food truck, then they sometimes have a brick and mortar, and they’ll invest in the community especially if the market’s there for them.”

Anyone who is interested in being a vendor will need to take a few steps before setting up.

You’ll need to get a mobile food permit from the Dubois County Health Department and the City of Jasper.
