MUSKGEON, Mich.-In 2014, Muskegon adopted a Mobile Food Vending Ordinance, allowing mobile food vendors to park downtown.  City staff members believe the vending units are a benefit to the city, specifically downtown, and would like to encourage more participation.  To do that, city commissioners passed an amendment Tuesday night that will lower the fees, lengthen the time vendors are allowed to park in one area and shorten the distance vendors need to be away from a brick and mortar business.  The cost will go from up to $300 per month, to no more than $300 per year.  Mobile vendors are also now allowed to be within 50 feet of a standing brick and mortar business.
