The Los Angeles City Council’s Transportation Committee will hold public hearings today to discuss how and where LA’s mobile eateries should operate. Councilman Tom LaBonge will introduce two motions that could result in new, tougher restrictions. That’s the fear anyway, of passionate food truck vendors and the insatiable street eaters who love them. Should LA enact new rules to regulate restaurants on wheels? If so, what should they be?

Full agenda for today's committee meeting, including different food truck proposals, can be found here [PDF]. The meeting begins at 2pm today and will include a public comment period.


Leron Gubler, President & CEO, Hollywood Chamber of Commerce

Matthew Geller, Chief Executive Officer, SoCal Mobile Food Vendors' Association (SCMVA)

Tom LaBonge, Los Angeles City Councilman; representing the 4th district which includes Griffith Park
