City Commissioners listened to emotional pleas not to approve the final reading of a proposed Food Truck Ordinance that would limit days of operation and restrict drive-thru service for current stationary food trucks like Jingo Java on Highway 96 North.

Before a standing-room-only crowd last Thursday night, the Fairview City Commission listened to the public outcry of citizens before unanimously voting to deny the second and final reading of a proposed Food Truck Ordinance.

The citizens impassioned pleas during Thursday’s public hearing followed weeks of phone calls and social media posts all sending a clear message of opposition to the city commission. Fairview resident LaRhonda Williams shared common sentiments during the public hearing, “We need an ordinance, just not this one.”
