Ice Cream Trucks Return To Colorado Community After 65 Years

Ice Cream Trucks Return To Colorado Community After 65 Years

Ice cream truck sales are no longer out in the cold in one Colorado city.

A 65-year-old ban on ice cream trucks was lifted by the Aurora City Council, KDVR-TV reported.

The ban started in 1957 and deemed the trucks a “nuisance,” the news outlet said, as people saw the vehicles as a safety risk for children.

Aurora Councilman Dustin Zvonek, part of a city committee meant to examine “outdated” laws, said the ban surprised members of the City Council.

“There were five of us on that committee and it was a collective, ‘What?’ And we just couldn’t believe it,” Zvonek said.

The councilman would later be the first person to buy from a truck following the ban’s reversal, according to his Twitter.

Zvonek, in a KUSA-TV story about the ban in April, said he believed the reversal could get money flowing in the Colorado community.

“I thought, ‘But ice cream trucks are a small business opportunity, and who doesn’t like ice cream?’” he said. “So it clearly fit into the [committee] and what we were doing.”

The city awarded Ice Cream Wagon, an ice cream truck company, with Aurora’s “first legal license” to sell the frozen treat, according to KDVR-TV.

“It’s a great day for the people of Aurora,” said Paul Capley of ice cream truck company Ice Cream Wagon.

The return of ice cream trucks has become a hit in the community with children and teenagers.

“It’s refreshing but also fun, because it’s not like you’re eating just like ice, you’re eating like cool-flavored ice,” 14-year-old Zoe Hepola told KDVR-TV.

“You just get to have fun, stay cool and stay amazing.”
