BOYNE CITY, MI – Boyne City officials want to know how their residents feel about food trucks. Two meetings have been scheduled to offer information and take public comment on the issue because, as of yet, the city has no policy regarding the mobile food industry.
Michael Cain, Boyne City’s city manager, said the community currently doesn’t have any policies in place relating specifically to food trucks’ operation. But with more and more operators emerging in Northern Michigan and elsewhere, he said the city commission has directed staff to explore the topic in the next few months and find out whether any new policies should be developed.
As part of the process, Cain said officials likely will consider approaches taken by other communities to food truck operation, and provide opportunities for public input.
The meetings are planned for 6 p.m. on Tuesday Feb. 25, and 5:30 p.m. on Thursday March 6. Both meetings are to be held at the Boyne District Library community room, located at 201 East Main St. in Boyne City.
