Food Truck


Food Truck Crisis
Old Cahaba neighborhood was upset when they found out that they would not have a food truck at the most pool event. The Old Cahaba HOA had done something creative. Every week they brought up a food truck to the neighbor club house. Some days taco, other BBQ, other fish or desserts. The events were Home Owner Association (HOA) Events to celebrate all the days that the clubhouse pools were open. It was very popular.

Unfortunately the food trucks were not allowed in Helena because they had not paid a permit fees unlike the other food businesses in Helena. After a complaint was filed,  the city notified them that they had to obtain a special permit. Currently the residents of Cahaba are asking Council members to consider an ordinance to make it easier to have food truck at events.

I think this is an awesome idea. Maybe you could have a special license similar to First Friday. B&M restaurants should not be too upset. People are not going to leave the pool to go to a restaurant.

This is a great idea, and one we would love to bring to our neighborhood too! Hopefully a solution can be reached quickly that will benefit both the residents and the city in time to bring the food trucks back for the summer.
