WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) -  The city of Wausau now has a new mobile vending ordinance.  Council members passed the proposal unanimously Tuesday evening.

The new ordinance has significant changes, which had input from both the food cart operators and the brick-and-mortar food establishments.

One of the new rules provides a 75 foot buffer zone between vendors and restaurants. This rules out a section of 3rd Street downtown, but opens up much of the downtown district for food cart operation. The new ordinance also expands the ability for mobile vendors to operate anywhere in the city, and not just downtown.

The Council also approved a change allowing possession of open intoxicants on the 4th Street right of way during Concerts on The Square.
