We totally screwed up this ordinance. Food trucks are not meant to be stationary, that’s why they are TRUCKS. They should be allowed to move from location to location wherever people are, festivals, parks, bars at closing time, on the Seawall. Limiting their location basically makes them a small brick and mortar, but far less comfortable. Our ordinance defeats the entire concept of food trucks and makes it hard for them to be successful.

Some towns are food truck towns and others aren't. Here in Austin we have 1,100+ food trucks. Some roam the city. One of my favorite trucks has a website and posts where they will be located each day of the week. That let's everybody have chance to eat great food. We have had a lot of food trucks convert to brick and mortar restaurants as well. It appears Galveston may have made their food truck ordinance a little to strict. These are mom & pop businesses that need a break on fees and rules. Maybe they will decide to go brick & mortar some day and that will be good for the entire city.

Well said. Food trucks serve a good purpose as long as they don't hurt existing restaurants.

City Council is either incompetent or totally beholding to small group of restaurant owners.
