New York town signals crackdown on food trucks operated by wineries
A debate over a crackdown on food trucks operated by wineries in North Fork, New York, continued during a meeting at the Southold, New York town hall Tuesday, according to the North Fork Patch. Southold officials have warned wineries that food trucks would receive citations since they are not allowed in areas zoned for residential or agricultural use.
Sal Dilberto of Dilberto Winery asked town officials what law prohibits food trucks in agricultural conservation zones.
Scott Russell, Southold town supervisor, said the town prohibits retail activity in residential and agricultural conservation zones.
Councilman Bill Ruland, the town board liaison to the agricultural advisory committee, said that some restaurant and deli owners have complained about the food trucks.
Council members said they wanted to work with all parties concerned to resolve the issues.
