Not that long ago, food truck owners in North Carolina launched a lawsuit over an ordinance which restricted them from operating their trucks in Carolina Beach.
Many entrepreneurs who own their own food truck business wouldn't be able to meet this requirement and therefore wouldn't be able to serve the community.
The food truck owners that were fighting back against this ridiculous rule, were arguing that the rule violates the state constitution; the restrictions prohibit food truck owners in an unfair way from havine the freedom to operate in this region. Those behind the fight were arguing that the rule was discriminatory against their food truck business.
A Small Victory
The town council in Carolina Beach only a few days ago decided that they were going to repeal their food truck law that would have kept many food truck business owners from being able to operate in the region.
Their decision to revoke that stipulation comes only one week after that lawsuit was filed by the various food truck owners who were seeking to have the regulation eventually overturned.
Those behind the fight are hoping that this will be a meaningful lesson to lawmakers, one that hopefully persuades them to avoid using government to favor a few businesses over others.
