EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Meeting Date: 5/13/2013
AGENDA #17


Title of Agenda Item: Consider Amendments to Current Food Truck Regulations within the Town Code.  (O-8)(O-9)(O-10)

Council Goal: Govern with Quality, Responsiveness, Efficiency

Background: At their April 10, 2013 meeting, Council discussed possible changes to the food truck  regulations. Staff has incorporated the interests expressed during the meeting into possible ordinance amendments for consideration.

Tonight three possible ordinances are proposed for consideration.

Proposed Ordinance A authorizes amendments to the Code that will allow for a food truck to perform a catering function within the Chapel Hill Town Limits.

Proposed Ordinance B authorizes amendments to the Code that will allow for food truck participation in special events and specialty markets (Food Truck Rodeos) within the Chapel Hill Town Limits.

Proposed Ordinance C provides comprehensive coverage of all provisions in both Proposed Ordinance A and Proposed Ordinance B.

In addition, Council will be asked to consider lowering the current food truck regulatory fee.

Fiscal Note: While it is proposed that the food truck regulatory fee be reduced, it is anticipated that such a change will increase the number of food trucks operating in the town and therefore such a change will have minimal fiscal impact.

Recommendations: That the Council consider the proposed amendments and reduction of regulatory fee and by motion and enactment of an ordinance effectuate their interests in regulating food trucks.
