Food trucks may be all the rage in NYC, but not everyone is hungering for them in Westchester. Namely, the restaurants.
Port Chester will hold a hearing Monday night to put more areas off-limits to food trucks and street vendors. (Click here for the proposed changes.) Abendroth Avenue, home of late to hot dog and taco trucks, would be off limits along with Don Bosco Place and the parking lots on Highland Street and Marvin Place.
Mount Vernon is also looking at new regulations after hearing complaints from restaurants and shopkeepers. The argument in both places is that the trucks pose unfair, free-wheeling competition to restaurants, which are saddled with higher costs in the form of rent or property tax. In Port Chester, vendors pay a $450 annual fee.
