Sedalia Residents Have Strong Opinions on Food Truck Flap
Sedalia residents have strong opinions on whether the City of Sedalia should grant a Transient Merchant and Peddlers License to Tacos El Arca, which is a food truck that parks on Thompson Street.
It's the parking on Thompson street, as Randy Kirby reports, that seems to be giving some on the City Council pause to renewing the food truck's license. I posed the following question on our Facebook page: Sedalia residents do you care if this food truck parks on the street while doing business?
It turns out Sedalia residents have some strong feelings on the matter:
This particular food truck does park on the street, but the customer service window is not on the street side; it is on the grass side. As a customer, I am not standing in the street when I place/receive my order and therefore there is no risk to my safety. -Robin Balke
I believe the food trucks are a good thing for any city. They are serving great food you might not get in a restaurant. As long as they are not blocking traffic and causing safety issues, let them set up there. -Sherry Gritz Smith
I see no problem with it. Maybe the city could establish a designated area for all the food trucks. Maybe the park or a parking lot. -Anna Tabor
Good for Mayor Kehde. If he's been doing this, let him carry on. -Terri Ballard
