City Council to Talk Food Trucks at Wednesday Committee Meeting
They can revitalize a desolate street corner with a tweet, but also potentially take business away from a restaurant when parked nearby. Food trucks have taken Los Angeles by storm over the last year and a half and politicians have taken notice.
On Wednesday afternoon, a transportation panel of L.A. City Councilmembers will hold its first public meeting (.pdf) on food trucks. Of the three motions to be discussed will be two recently authored by Councilmember Tom Labonge.
"I want to hear from everybody," LaBonge told LAist today. "I want to get information out, to ask question and get reports back from the department. I want to try form a possible solution to what at some locations is overwhelming activity... I look forward to tomorrow."
