From the DMV Food Truck Association:

“On April 1st, DC’s Office of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) made a simple yet devastating policy change that only serves to impede small business growth and put food truck owners out of business; and we’re the ones “fooled” if we stand by and do nothing. The DMV Food Truck Association (DMVFTA) believes this change is misguided and unfair to all food trucks. Since this change, DMVFTA has been nothing but vocal about their feelings and support for their members, and DCRA has been nothing but silent to respond.

DCRA manages the DC food truck lottery system which provides vending spaces along the 10 most popular food truck vending streets in the city. DCRA has now decided, unilaterally of course, that only one truck per business can enter the lottery.

This one simple change is particularly catastrophic for businesses with two or more food trucks which maintain staff on all of them throughout the year. (more…)

If there is a liquor store near you that has been a bad neighbor, now is a great time to make your displeasure known. It is liquor license renewal season and tonight (April 5), the DC government is holding a free information session for people who want to know about procedure to protest a new or renewal liquor license.

Sarah Fashbaugh, Community Resource Officer at DC’s Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA), appeared before Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 6E/Shaw on April 3 to remind about the renewal season and about the information session. Attendees at tonight’s session will learn about the relevant DC laws and the procedures to file an official protest, among other topics. (more…)
