City Council advances lunch wagon bill

A bill designed to allow lunch trucks more time to sell food on Honolulu streets is now poised for a final vote after City Council members this afternoon voted unanimously to give Bill 59 the second of three necessary approvals.

Under the latest version of the bill, introduced by Councilwoman Tulsi Gabbard, food trucks and other street vendors would be allowed to park as long as is allowed in a zone with parking limits, or up to three hours.

Food truck owners said they’ve been getting cited by Honolulu police officers using an ordinance that allows vendors to sell their food and other items only for 15 minutes when stationary in a city street or highway.
