City of Williston May Soon Allow Food Trucks

More food options could be coming soon to Williston.

“It’s a little overwhelming to think of all the choices, all the opportunity that would open up being in the city,” says Daisy Burgara, owner of Tacos La Mexicana. 


Current city ordinance limits the operation of food trucks to events sponsored by the city, fair, or CVB. The regulations have been in place since 2012.


“Our goal even though we’re looking to accommodate new businesses in a mobile fashion, will be to continue maintaining transportation networks so there’s no impact to safety, no impact to traffic,” says city administrator, David Tuan. 


Some like the convenience that mobile food trucks provide.


“Actually having that food accessible right there for you,” says Edgar Lozano, of one of the features he enjoys about food trucks.

Tacos La Mexicana has two locations along Highway 85, one in Arnegard and another just outside Williston city limits. The owners say they would consider moving into town if city ordinance is changed to allow for it. 

The food truck operators believe the change could benefit both them and the community. 


“A lot of locals tell us they haven’t had something like this in a while and they keep coming back,” says Modesto Fonesca. 


And while they’re eager to show what they can bring to the table, they say they’re prepared for any decision the city makes. 


A public meeting was held earlier this evening to gather community input. The Planning and Zoning Committee will meet on Monday. It will make its recommendation to the city commission, which will hold a public hearing on June 26th.
