Sunrise To Discuss Food Truck Restrictions
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Food trucks have come a long way and have recently become a big deal.
Some food trucks even band together to show up at locations on a regular basis.
The weekly round-up in Hollywood at Arts Park every Monday night has been a big hit with area residents. Food trucks even keep fans posted on when and where they’re going to be on Facebook and Twitter.
One city commissioner isn’t so sure he wants them to roll through his town anymore. Joey Scutto, who just happens to own a restaurant down the street from City Hall, wants them banned, according to the Sun-Sentinel. He reportedly told his fellow commissioners that they pose a threat to some restaurants in the city that are just struggling to get by.
Some commissioners aren’t thrilled about a ban but say there should be regulations on where and when they can set up. Instead of a ban, the truck operators should be forced to get a permit if they want to operate within the city limits. City officials have also drawn up an ordinance which only allow them to operate between the hours of 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The commission, which was supposed to take up the debate on the matter last Tuesday, delayed the discussion until December 11th.
