With the City Council's unanimous vote to repeal South Pasadena's ban on food trucks, the chamber of commerce will weigh in on an ordinance that works for everyone.
"It is important that City Council repealed that outdated [ban],'' said Chamber President Scott Feldman.
"Now the chamber looks forward to helping them create [new vending regulations] that work for both brick and mortar eateries and the ones that have wheels and serve through windows,'' he added.
Wednesday's night repeal of the food truck ban follows a lawsuit filed in August by the Southern California Mobile Food Vendors Association. The suit alleged that the 1951 ban is in direct contradiction with state law passed in 1984.
"This section has become obsolete and right now we've been sued because we still have this on the books," City Attorney Richard Adams is quoted in a Pasadena Star News story.
