I got a comment the other day about my post from a couple of weeks ago about Saving Columbia's Food Trucks. Sorry for not relating this info sooner....this is why you should follow me on Facebook and Twitter. Sometimes I update those and forget to update the blog. Oops.
Anyway. I ended up going to the City Council meeting that was dealing with this issue, after emailing my post about it to the Mayor and Council Members. There was quite a crowd there to support our local trucks. First the representative from the SC Hospitality Association spoke about his concerns. After he finished, and the Council asked some questions, 5 or 6 people spoke on behalf of the trucks. The Free Times ran a great article about this, so I suggest that you go read it here. Their coverage is much more comprehensive than anything I'd be able to relate.
Bottom line, there were some positive results for our food trucks. At one of the Council meetings in September 2012, the issue will be revisited to see how the trucks and restaurants are living in harmony. In the meantime, keep on truckin'. Sorry...couldn't resist. But seriously, keep an eye on each truck's Twitter feed, as that's the best way to keep track of who is where on any given day. And make sure to let the trucks know how much you enjoyed your meal. Feedback is always a great thing.
