Township Administrator Matt Watkins explained how Councilwoman Cruz asked him to look into the current Food Truck Ordinance. Matt then explained the current four tiers of licenses and how many are awarded per tier. Matt also said the current ordinance needs improvement. He would like to put together a matrix proposal for the Council and go from there. Councilwoman Mundell asked a few questions including how other towns have handled this ordinance and the fees. She also asked that in the new Ordinance that there is a provision put in place that wouldn’t allow these food trucks to be by schools during certain hours. Matt also discussed a possible bid process for the food trucks. Councilman Gamble asked that in the new application the food truck owners should include where they plan to have the truck and Councilman Joanow discussed possible limitations set forth by the permit. Matt said he and Township Attorney Michael Parlavecchio would continue to look into the Ordinance and present a draft to the Council.
