Now Hoboken’s Cracking Down on Food Trucks

By
No rest for weary wheels.

We know at least one food-truck operator — born-and-bred New Yorkers — who couldn't get a permit to run a truck in NYC owing to the kinds of issues that arose last summer, so instead they hopped the Hudson to Jersey. Well, now New York Street Food brings word that Hoboken is cracking down on its trucks. A proposed ordinance in the city council would require trucks to stay 75 feet from operating business (sound familiar?) and would up the annual fee from $500 to $3,500. Also: Food-truck parking could get restricted to no more than six hours. Guess if all this passes, Staten Island truly will be the last food-truck holdout. [New York Street Food]
