D.C. restaurants, food trucks continue battle
District brick-and-mortar restaurant owners and the city's food truck vendors continue to spar over how to resolve the dispute on where the trucks can operate, despite an offer Wednesday by the vendors, the Washington Examiner reports.
Until the Wednesday D.C. Council hearing, the two sides had been battling over a bill to apply the city's 10 percent restaurant tax to the trucks. Currently, the city requires the trucks to pay a $1,500 annual fee in lieu of the tax, the Examiner reports.
Kristi Whitfield, director of the D.C. Food Truck Association told the council a change in the taxes should come with a regulation change allowing food trucks to stay parked "regardless of whether or not there is a line," according to the Washington Examiner.
