Vending trucks: Roamers and stationary
NO ROOM TO ROAM | Philadelphia Daily News | 09/01/2010
Besides the three city licenses that all food-vending trucks need, Burns said, stationary trucks pay $3,000 a year for a permit to occupy one of the 300 legal spots in Center City or the 100 legal spots in University City.
The Twitter-centric roaming trucks are such a new phenomenon here that the city's laws-which still describe a $300 vending permit for horse-drawn wagons-exist in a different millennium.
Is the easy solution just charge truck vendors the same fee whether they roam or are stationary? Put them on an even playing field as far as government costs go?
Charging the same as a stationary truck encourages roaming trucks.. Next thing ya know, everybody'll want to be a roaming truck and I can see the fights over territory (recall tow truck incidents recently... well, maybe not AS drastic, but I can then see lotsa people fighting for certain spots). Thats just my opinion.. make it slightly more expensive for a roaming truck.. No matter what way your opinion falls, you can't disagree that licenses need to be updated to account for roaming trucks.
Right now roaming trucks pay $300 and stationary pay $3000, according to the article. It currently is cheaper to be a roamer it seems.
