So, as you may have heard, the City Council did indeed pass their packaged-food-only ordinance at their meeting last Tuesday. This was done despite the protests of three people speaking out against it, including yours truly, and nobody speaking in favor. Their reasoning, as presented by Councilman Adams, was that, since the County currently bans hot food trucks anyway (for whatever reason), an additional City ban would have no effect. The hot food trucks that occasionally appear for special events in the city are unaffected by either ban.
Of course, if activists are able to successfully get RivCo Environmental Health to change their minds, we will now have to overturn the City ban as well. Sounds like a step backwards to me.
