Food trucks in Willits—Part I
A Portland-esque scourge or just the kind of culture that the people of Willits are looking for?
Depends on who you ask.
Back in about 2013 the food truck issue made it to Willits City Council.
If eavesdropping counts for anything, people have been known to lament how nice it would be if Willits would let food trucks into a city park like they do in other communities.
Heard it several times in line years ago at Taqueria Ramirez on Blosser Lane.
The owner of the beloved Ardella’s restaurant told city council during that same time that she did not care so long as a food truck was not blocking the view of her sign!
If you were at meetings during those years, you would have heard it all.
What if Willits became a dump like the famous food truck courts in Portland?
What if a tool vendor parked in front of Mendo Mill?
What if there was noise or music?
What about hand washing? Recyclables?
Some of the city’s food truck, mobile vendor or peddler policies are in the city’s municipal code.
More rules and red tape is found in the city’s paper work and policies for licensing mobile vendors within city limits.
