Berkeley Tries to Help Displaced Food Truck Owners
Berkeley city councilman Kriss Worthington has taken up the cause of three food truck vendors who got bumped from their spots by university construction.
The vendors say with no place to operate, they're losing thousands of dollars a month. Worthington put the issue on the next City Council agenda, saying he hopes staff in charge of food truck locations will come prepared.
"I think there's an incentive for the City to look at this before the Council meeting," Worthington said. "I don't think the City wants the meeting to be like, 'oh well we messed up by telling them two days ahead of time that they were out of there,' and not have some sort of positive possibilities."
Mayor Tom Bates says the city has been working for months to relocate the trucks and is negotiating with the University for space.
