MADISON, CT – After initially bringing up the subject last summer, town officials seem to be getting set to take action on proposed rules by which, if passed, food truck vendors must abide.
The vendors have been a talking point in Madison, and the town is holding a public discussion on a draft of the rules later this month.
The Board of Selectmen first took up the issue last summer because the trucks, which are concentrated on School Street in front of Academy School, have limited regulation under town ordinances.
“The selectmen at the time started looking into rules and regulations to eliminate any problems before they come up,” Town Planner David Anderson said.
While Anderson said a large contingent of residents have been positive about the food trucks, he added that some people are opposed to the area where the vendors operate.
“Some people have felt that they are inappropriate in what is a historical area,” Anderson said.
Though he said some have disagreed with where the vendors are situated, Anderson made clear that the town isn’t trying to run the trucks out of Madison.
“We’re not trying to get rid of the food trucks,” Anderson said. “I think what the selectmen are saying is, ‘We’re OK with what’s going on, provided that there’s some limitations to it.’”
