Challenges facing the mobile food outlets
City Council member Jessica Lappin introduces a bill to suspend the vending permit issued to any truck with two parking tickets a year, & take away altogether the permit of any truck unfortunate enough to receive three parking tickets a year.
"It will be Atlanta's first dedicated food-truck lot," he said. The group can "get it off the ground within the next month," he added.
"We will have food trucks in the Arts District by the spring," count on it.
Several City Council members say they want to expand a city ordinance that passed last year to allow for more vendors downtown as well as in neighborhoods in other parts of the city, including Cedar-Riverside, the U of M campus and perhaps Uptown.
"This could never work in Sonoma," said Brown, shaking his head with dismay. He cased the Food Truck Friday premises, pointing out problems.
