FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – The city of Fayetteville is preparing for a new food truck lottery drawing that will decide what mobile vendors get permits for 2015, according to a news release.

On March 18, the Fayetteville City Council passed a new mobile vendor ordinance and then in April started accepting applications for businesses that wanted to operate a food truck in public areas.

In May, six vendors were picked from the food truck lottery, but later in the month they were all disqualified because they did not meet the criteria of the ordinance.

Applications for 2015 can be found here for food trucks that will park parallel in public parking spaces to sell food downtown (primarily on Dickson Street).

Applications for food trucks or trailers that will be used in city parks or streets outside the downtown area can be found here.

Lottery tickets can be turned in from Oct. 1 through Oct. 31 at the Fayetteville Development Services Department at 125 W. Mountain St., according to the release.

The drawing for permits will be done at 9 a.m. on Nov. 3 in room 111 of Fayetteville City Hall at 113 W. Mountain St., the release states.

Lottery winners will be contacted by city staff the same day the drawing is done, according to the release.
