Audio: Kosciusko aldermen postpone the vote on increasing food truck permit fees


This week, the Kosciusko Board of Aldermen was supposed to vote on raising permit fees for food trucks operating inside the city limits.

However, that vote did not take place due to an additional change made to the language in the ordinance concerning food trucks operating during special events.

“Special events usually are put on by KAP…and so we thought, while we’re doing this, the language in that really should be, with the permission of the Board of Aldermen,” said Mayor Tim Kyle. “Ultimately, that’s who it’s up to.  So I said while we’re doing this, we need to change that language”

At the board’s final meeting of June, the board proposed a change to the ordinance that would increase the yearly fee from $250 to $550 for food trucks based in Attala County and $750 for trucks that are based outside of the county.

The Board will now vote on the issue at the next meeting, July 16.
