Petition to support Charlotte Taco Trucks
Posted on 31 Mar 2011 by Justin Ruckman
“With a slogan, ‘Carne Asada Is Not a Crime,’ the advocacy group Action NC launched an online petition calling for revisions to a Charlotte law that it says has forced many mobile food vendors out of business.
More than 117 people have signed the online petition, posted on www.change.org, on behalf of the mobile food vendors, also known as taco trucks or ‘loncheras.’
The group has asked for revisions to some of the ordinance’s requirements, including a 9 p.m. curfew and 400-foot buffer between mobile vendors and residential neighborhoods.
The vendors also say the 90-day limit on how long they can operate in one location is too strict and serves as a barrier to creating a sustainable customer relationship.”
Here’s the petition, if you want to go sign.
