This summer, the city of Geneva is set to permit food trucks on public property for the first time, although they will not be allowed downtown initially.

Last week, City Council approved a measure that may ultimately enable mobile food vendors to operate in Lakefront Park.

The resolution, which excludes downtown locations from the potential food truck spots, will require a second approval during next month’s meeting to become part of the city code.

City Council modified the original proposal by City Manager Amie Hendrix and her team, which included food truck locations at Lakefront Park, Bicentennial Park, and on Exchange and Seneca streets, following extensive discussions and input from local residents.

Although no restaurant owners spoke during public input, two residents voiced their support for the proposal, with some suggested modifications. Despite initial enthusiasm, some councilors expressed reservations about the food truck initiative after downtown restaurant owners raised concerns about potential loss of business.
