1. Discussion of Mobile Food Vendors
There was discussion regarding mobile food vendors in the Village of North Aurora. The trustees discussed food vendors being required to register for a permit. Trustee Guethle said that the county and state would regulate food vendors. Trustee Faber asked if the Village could treat this as a peddler’s license. Trustee Gaffino wanted to make sure the Village was aware of what the vendors were selling and how much was being sold.
2. Discussion of Future Land Uses for 24 S. Lincolnway
Toth asked the Board for feedback regarding what uses they would find desirable or non-desirable. Trustee Curtis said that she did not want to see any car related businesses in the 24 S. Lincolnway location. Curtis added that the property would be good for small office or a coffee shop. Trustee Gaffino suggested food related businesses since that will bring people to the area. Gaffino also agreed with not allowing car related businesses. Trustee Faber said he did not want to see a title loans business in that location. Trustee Carroll suggested a business that is food related which would complement the other food businesses. Trustee Curtis suggested an ice cream shop, adding that she did not want the area to turn into a fast food strip. Trustee Guethle said he would like to see a Starbucks or a Dunkin Donuts.
The Board agreed that they were not in favor of businesses such as car sales, mechanics, gas stations, or rental car companies.
