Earlier this year we mentioned the problems Oakland was having with it's food truck laws, mainly Bites on Browadway, as it was on, then off, then on again, after the organizer Karen Hester and the city went back and forth over whether the food truck gathering was in accordance with city codes.

The Oakland's Community and Economic Development Committee members approved a resolution that would allow for more streamlined, and balanced process for food trucks to operate within the city limits. The City Council will look at the new plan December 6.
