As an MP resident I'm betting that these rules would deter food trucks from our town when they have other choices of places to go. This is a loss for all the residents of MP. I proudly support the food truck phenomenon and have yet to have an unpleasant experience. The food is great, the people are nice and friendly, the areas always left clean, and it adds to what MP has to offer. If I had the time to sit down and wait an hour for my food at the Okra Grill (and yes it HAS taken that long on several occassions) than I would eat there, but sometimes I'm looking for FAST and delicious and I would much rather eat great food from a food truck than junk at Burger King or McDonalds.
Seriously arguing over the fact that plastic signs are ugly? I think it's time the city council get's off their high horse and starts focusing on bigger problems. If the city moves forward with the permit plan, I think it should only apply to those food truck owners who live outside the MP city limits. Protect your peeps Mt. Pleasant and keep the city growing and diversified!
