Oceanside Food Truck Fight

Two Oceanside councilmembers would like to take a look at allowing food trucks to operate in the City. However, it seems as if Deputy Mayor Esther Sanchez and councilmember Jerry Kern, the proponents of the gastro-truck initiative, seem to be heading in a different direction.

According to tonight's agenda, Deputy Mayor Sanchez would like to "allow gourmet food trucks in Oceanside under certain conditions." In addition, councilmember Sanchez is interested in holding an "international gourmet food truck festival" in the North County city.

In contrast, the report from councilmember Kern is to direct staff to amend the city code to also allow food trucks, however, not the gourmet trucks referred to by Sanchez. Instead, Kern would like to see "prepared food vending vehicles to operate on private property," with the necessary permits.

"I'm a little cautious or leery that they could just pull into a public parking lot at the beach and start serving," Kern was quoted as saying in an article published in the North County Times.

"I don't like these trucks in direct competition with someone who has to pay rent on their space," added Kern.

The differences in opinion from the councilmembers might present a fork in the road for foodies looking to park their gastro-rig on The Strand in Oceanside.
