In 2022 the Gallatin City Council amended the city’s code of ordinances to include specific rules for mobile food vendors including hours of operation, operating requirements, permitting and enforcement.
Gallatin City Amended Ordinance O21Ø7-45 establishes a $130 permit allowing food-truck sales across the city for an entire year. The fee will be used to cover the costs of safety inspections of food trucks.
A gathering of four or more food trucks is considered a “food-truck rally” and would require an additional $50 permit from the city’s Planning Department. Each food truck vendor is also required to have the full-year permit. A rally permit requires applicants to maintain a litter-free site, coordinate traffic and pedestrian safety, and meet safety standards when utilizing external lighting and electrical equipment.
Operating without a permit may result in a $500 permit fee for subsequent applications.
Contact the Planning Department at 615-451-5796 for more information on food-truck permitting.
