LA City Council to Regulate on Food Trucks


From the BH Courier:

The Los Angeles City Council directed its attorneys yesterday to draft an ordinance that would establish a permit process for food trucks.

First Fridays, before the food trucks came:


Councilman Bill Rosendahl said the ordinance should be developed over the next 60-90 days, with input from food truck operators. “It is a work in progress, but overall, (I want to see) food trucks respecting the brick-and-mortar restaurants, number one; and that parking spaces they use are legitimate spaces,’ Rosendahl said.

The council asked for additional information before acting on a proposal to regulate where food trucks can be located to keep them from being a hazard to pedestrians and vehicular traffic.

The council also directed its attorneys to work with Los Angeles County officials to develop a system that would “grade’ food trucks in the same way that brick-and-mortar restaurants are graded.
