A new draft bylaw in Hamilton concerning mobile food trucks is raising some eyebrows.
Most notably, officials with the Ontario Restaurant Hotel & Motel Association.
Currently, a mobile food truck needs to have permission from a business in order to set up within 100 meters of its property line.
The proposed bylaw -- according to the association's Dan Rodrigues -- would close the distance down to 3 parking spaces.
The draft bylaw would also let food trucks set up at parking meters and simply feed the meters while feeding customers.
Rodigues thinks that's an impediment for businesses -- as the meters are generally their for potential customers visting shops in the area.
ORHMA will continue to communicate with council and city staff about its concerns.
