Selectmen to discuss regs for food cart vendors

NORTH ANDOVER — A food vendor cannot just drive a truck to North Andover and start selling hot dogs, ice cream, frozen yogurt or fried dough.

The vendor needs to obtain a permit from the town Health Department. The selectmen are scheduled to review proposed new regulations for mobile food vendors at tomorrow night's meeting of the board.

The selectmen will meet at 7 p.m. on the second floor of Town Hall. Town Manager Andrew Maylor is expected to present a draft study on the Route 125 corridor.

The selectmen have often said they want to encourage economic development along Route 125, which now has large areas of unused land.

Running will have a prominent place on the agenda – running in road races, that is, not running for office. Representatives of the Borderline Running Club will be at the meeting to present a donation to the Friends of the North Andover Senior Center.

The proceeds of the 4th of July Road Race, which the club resurrected, were dedicated to the Senior Center. Eli Bailin of Green Stride has requested permission to hold the Earth, Rock, Run on the streets of North Andover on April 24 of next year. This event is slated to start and finish at 1600 Osgood St.

E. Alexandra Coakley of the North Andover Athletic Association is seeking permission to hold the 3rd Annual Knights on the Run road race Oct. 19. This race will start and finish at the home of the Scarlet Knights, North Andover High School.

While most of the younger generation is in the middle of summer vacation, the members of the North Andover High School Chorus apparently want a break from their time off. Chorus director Sara Durkin has asked to reserve the Common for a concert Aug. 1, 5 to 9 p.m.
