Food trucks in Guelph not arriving soon

City hall plans to take a close look at whether it should be made easier for food trucks to operate in Guelph.
“Businesses have advised that current regulation of food vehicles makes it difficult to operate” in this city, says a city staff report that goes to a council committee on June 3.
Food truck operations are governed by the city’s business licensing bylaw as well as its zoning bylaw.
Most inquiries have been to operate food trucks in the downtown area, although there have also been requests to operate them on private property, on city streets and in city parks, the report says.
The city has been told that current bylaw regulations limiting where food trucks can operate “are onerous and are inconsistent with the regulations of other temporary food sales,” it says.
The city plans to adjust its work plans for 2014 to allow staff to undertake a review of mobile and temporary food sales.
“We believe there is a desire from both the public and the food truck industry” for such a review to be done, the city hall report says.
The review is to start in September. It will involve public input and is expected to take several months.
