TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The debate is heating up over possible legislation for mobile food trucks in Toledo. City council met Tuesday to discuss the issue in front of a crowd of restaurant and food truck owners.

Mobile food trucks have attracted a lot of business in downtown Toledo, and now the city is looking to order up some regulations for the vendors.

"There's definitely common ground [between restaurant and food truck owners]," said Adam Sattler, owner of the Ottawa Tavern and Wanderlust food truck. "When we talk to restaurant owners and food truck owners, we were surprised at how easily we found that place, but I think in order for that to happen, the legislation needs to be completely scrapped."

Phil Barone, owner of Rosie's Italian Grill and the Rolling Chef food truck, can see both sides of the issue.

"The city regulations – it's something that needs to be done," he said. "I mean, the food trucks are not going to go away. It's a thing of the future and the present."

Under the proposed legislation, mobile food vendors would face a $1,000 licensing permit fee, would be required to get one million dollars in liability insurance, and the would not be able to park within 100 feet of a restaurant.

"Hopefully as a result of the testimony the council receives today, revisions will be made to the legislation," said Toledo Councilwoman Lindsay Webb. "For example, the thousand-dollar fine is far too onerous for the ordinary truck owner."

One recommendation is for the restaurant owners and food truck owners to work together and come up with legislation that works for everyone, then present that to the city council.
