Shawnee looks at regulations for food trucks, a confusing city-by-city issue

While Shawnee currently does not require food trucks to obtain a special event permit for city-sponsored events and private events, special event permits are required to operate on private property at events open to the public. Private property owners are restricted to obtaining two special event permits annually.
