Following the publication of this story online, the Winters City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to recommend adoption of the food truck ordinance as it was presented to them. Additional information on Tuesday evening’s city council decision will be printed in a future edition of the Express. The original story as published on Monday follows below: The Winters city council will discuss an ordinance regulating the operation of food trucks in the city at their scheduled meeting on Tuesday. The ordinance has gone through numerous revisions since it was first introduced at a Winters planning commission meeting several months ago. The draft the ordinance was spearheaded in part by a city intern who spent several months over the summer researching the issue, holding workshops with local businesses and collaborating with city officials on the ordinance. If passed, the ordinance would limit the number of trucks on a key intersection in Winters and require food truck operators to obtain a specialized permit. The council meeting will be one of the final venues for members of the public to voice their opinion on the food truck ordinance. The Winters city council will be held Tuesday, Dec. 4 at 6:30 p.m. inside council chambers at City Hall.


Correction: An earlier version of this story contained an opening paragraph that erroneously stated the date of the council meeting. Council meetings are held on Tuesdays, not on Mondays. A later version of this story said the city council had formally adopted the ordinance. The council formally recommended the ordinance; a second reading and additional consideration is scheduled for the council meeting on Dec. 18.]]>
