Madison officials are looking to phase out late-night food carts Downtown as part of a broader approach to reducing alcohol-related violence and other problems.

A draft proposal prepared by three city departments calls for an end to late-night food carts — vendors who can sell food in designated Downtown spots from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. Thursday through Saturday — by 2023. Late-night vendors from the past two years would be given a five-year window to continue serving food in the early morning hours to provide time to transition their business away from the practice.
