We all know that DC food trucks are still operating under the 30 year old ice cream truck regulations. And, we all know that those regulations need to be updated. The good news is that there is actually a set of new, unpublished DC food truck regulations sitting on Mayor Vincent Gray’s desk right now!
The bad news? The unpublished regulations have been sitting on Mayor Gray’s desk for over three months. While the regulations languish, the Restaurant Association and other anti-food truck groups are lobbying the Mayor to make food trucks illegal.
So, what we need to do is to get Mayor Gray to release those regulations to the public so that the citizens of this city can comment publicly and start the process to make DC a friendly city for food trucks.
