LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Three downtown Las Vegas parking spaces will be awarded in a lottery available to food truck operators.

The city of Las Vegas said licensed mobile food vendors wanting to do business in downtown registered for a lottery that would allow them access to three legal parking spots on a rotating basis.

The lottery is set to take place Monday at City Hall.

Under a program regarding the spaces, the designated spots will allow mobile food vendors to operate legally. The proposal, which was approved by Las Vegas city council in February, was created after a vote last October that banned food trucks from setting up within 150 feet from brick and mortar restaurants.

Violations of the ordinance will carry fines of up to $1,000 and/or six months in jail.

The three designated spaces are located at 100 Bonneville Ave. near the Bonneville Transit Center; 400 block of S. Third Street, near the Regional Justice Center; and 1 Lewis Ave. near City Hall.
