SPRINGFIELD -- During Thursday's Effingham County Industrial Development Authority meeting, it was reported than an effort to make food truck regulations in Effingham County more uniform will likely land a wider variety of food options for residents.

According to Barbara Prosser, past-president of the Effingham County Chamber of Commerce, the chamber, the Effingham County Health Department and representatives of the county's municipal goverments recently met to streamline laws regarding food trucks.

"Particularly, they are looking for a single ordinance that would allow (food trucks) to operate," Prosser said. "Savannah has an ordinance of that nature but, right now, we have different ordinances across the board between the cities and county."

Prosser said the goal is a single ordinance for food trucks.

"It makes it easier for food trucks to do business in Effingham County," she said.

Prosser said Effingham County's state legislative delegation is also involved in the process to make sure state laws are observed. 

Prosser also reported that Kona Ice of Effingham County will give away free samples of its product on April 17 in the IDA parking lot at 520 W. 3rd St. The giveaway is part of a nationwide campaign that day.
