Food Truck Ban at Council Tonight

The food truck ban is up for a vote at the City Council meeting tonight, 6pm. Once again, the item is on the consent calendar, which means that it will likely pass in one big vote along with every other item on said calendar. However, you do have the right to speak out about it!

There's a great item in the PE with an overview of the state of play on the issue- apparently the County currently has regulations quite similar to the proposed ones in the City, so defeating this proposal will hardly open up our streets to a food truck renaissance. However, it's always better not to go backwards. (Bonus: a certain blogger was quoted in the PE piece.)

Please attend the meeting and let your councilmembers know that food trucks can be a pleasant part of a walkable city.
