Limitations may be made on food truck operations in Jacksonville. The city council says it has received as many as 20 different requests to operate from mobile food vendors.
Council members say, because of the number of trucks, they're considering only allowing the trucks to operate during certain occassions, like the upcoming Jacksonville Christmas Parade.
"It's one of them things that, ‘we want you here, but we don't want you here.' That's the feeling that we get," said Greg Stay with Smoke-N-Hot BBQ.
"Of course it would provide some sales tax money, as well, we're always looking at that, but you don't want to do that at the risk of destroying some existing business, either," said Jacksonville Mayor Johnny Smith.
The council will meet again December 10th. A specially-appointed committee is expected to make recommendations.
