Horry County to consider amended mobile food truck ordinance

Horry County Council will discuss allowing prepackaged foods in mobile carts at the start of next year, despite pleas by those who drafted the initial ordinance to re-consider full-service food trucks.

Some critics even went as far as to call the new ordinance one that essentially approves “mobile vending machines.”

The county’s infrastructure and regulation committee decided to send the amended ordinance to full council without a recommendation to allow council members to discuss it objectively, said Carl Schwartzkopf, chairman of the infrastructure and regulation committee.
