City Council President spearheading effort to lift some restrictions on food trucks
City Council President Stacy Head says she'll introduce legislation at the next council meeting to change some of the city's food truck laws.
"I'm gonna introduce an ordinance to change the restrictions that we have on food trucks currently next week and we'll be voting on it two weeks after that," Head told 99.5FM Thursday.
Head says she wants to allow more food trucks to operate in the city and will propose increasing permit capacity from 100 to 200.
She also wants to extend the time that a food truck can legally stay in one place - from 45 minutes to 4 hours - and allow food trucks to have more access to the CBD.
Head also proposes to increase the total pemitting fee for food trucks to $750.
She says the current laws need to be changed because they're "restrictive" and "unrealistic for modern times."
