honolulu food trucks

HONOLULU, HI – Food truck vendors are being given more time to sell their product on city streets. The city council today passed bill 59… and it was signed by the Mayor shortly after.

Council member Tulsi Gabbard introduced the measure…when she found out that an outdated city ordinance forced vendors to move every fifteen minutes, or face stiff fines.

The revised law allows them to stay in one place for up to three hours.

“Small business owners can continue to serving ono food to their customers and can do so without looking over their shoulder fearing criminal prosecution,” says Tulsi Gabbard, Honolulu City Council.

Some food trucks vendors had moved out of the downtown area to avoid the law, but now plan to return.

The industry says a handful of vendors closed down because of the toll the law was taking on their business.
