While L.A. city council argues the future of food truck law, mobile caterers look poised to proliferate in Santa Monica. Yesterday, S.M. city officials passed legislation allowing private property owners to turn their parking lots into food truck courts. Santa Monica Daily Mirror announces that Steve Taub, owner of California Heritage Museum, is interested in reviving his court at 14th and S.M. Blvd. that he saw shut down within a day last January for zoning violations. A four month test period will grant $953.72 temporary-use permits valid for three months to winning applicants, with another potential court being eyed at Main Street and Ocean Park. So if Bill Rosenthal helps legislate his beloved Grilled Cheese Truck out of L.A., he’ll still have the option of heading west.
