Six truck operators attended the meeting and three addressed the committee. The council had passed changes to the ordinance that regulates food trucks on Oct. 14. The amendment exempted food trucks from some of the rules governing other types of mobile businesses. At the meeting, however, operators said that the exemptions did not go far enough. In particular, they objected to rules requiring a criminal background check for every employee, diagrams for every spot they intended to occupy during the year and notarized letters of permission from property owners.
