If you are starting a food truck/food cart business, you will need a Business Registration. You also need to contact the Ventura County Environmental Health Division at (805) 654-2813 regarding their requirements.
If located on private property, you will also need to obtain a Temporary Use Permit, with up to one extension (if approved). After that, you would be required to obtain an Administrative Permit (if approved).
If located on a public street, you will also need to submit a Vendor Form and obtain a Badge from the City. A vendor may not stop a vehicle for more than thirty (30) minutes in any one (1) location, unless a Temporary Use Permit has been applied for and approved.
If located at Moorpark College, food vendors do not need to obtain a Business Registration, but will need permits from Ventura County Environmental Health Division and from the college.
Additional requirements and restrictions can be found in the Moorpark Municipal Code Section 5.64.
