Proposed food truck ordinance not well-received

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A proposed ordinance that could put regulations over food trucks in Albuquerque is getting some pretty negative feedback.

The proposed ordinance would not allow a food truck to park 100 feet near a restaurant on city streets and would add fees. It would also require permits or limit the time trucks are parked on city streets.

Some food truck owners spoke at Wednesday’s committee meeting voicing their concerns.

“I’m concerned. We’re very small businesses we have very small profit margins as is and if that could be raised just annually possibly without our input it could be prohibitive to food trucks,” said Josh Rood-Ojalzo from Irrational Pies.

The committee agreed the proposed ordinance needed some changes and postponed it until August when changes are made.
