Food Truck Violations Citations Coming in Leesburg

The Leesburg Town Council has been discussing whether to modify regulations that prohibit food truck operations downtown, but has made no changes to this point.

Meanwhile, some businesses, including several of the town’s micro-breweries, have been inviting food trucks to serve their clientele on private property. That’s still a no-no.

On Monday, Town Manager Kaj Dentler asked the council whether he should delay enforcement of the regulations until the council decides to on a new policy. Council members agreed to discuss the issue, but not until after their summer recess. They’re set to discuss it during their Sept. 11 work session.

That delay means those businesses will be receiving formal zoning violation notices from the town in the coming weeks. Dentler said, that while notices will be sent, he plans no enforcement action until the council decides whether to remove the prohibition.

    Rick – perhaps if you teamed up with Michael O’Connor you would have a 99% of changing things within the downtown area. Obviously, he, Kristen, Gwen, and Kelly are tight and know how to get things done even with some of the newbies on the Council. Perhaps when the Town learns the word “arbitrary” as it applies to ALL matters, especially fines, regulations, not allowing input from those who no longer serving, etc. we can have a just and right government. Until then, our leadership, and government will continue to be broken.

    Ah, the ramblings of leesburgsfinest(Not!) again. It is indeed interesting, after all the talk about elected officials and their social media doings, to see this news source putting up a comment by someone defaming people. Maybe the editor of this fine news site should consider why it puts up a comment by someone who writes that criminal fraud is committed by referred to elected officials, which as I understand it, is libel per so, and for which this fine news site can be sued, without the need to prove any damages. Maybe this fine newspaper site is not interested in the truth, but in only being a platform for libel.

    Dentler picks and chooses what he tells Council and what he asks permission to do. If it is dirty work he uses Council as the red headed step child to take the fall for him. When Dentler wants to do something he just does it and says screw this weak Council that does nothing and knows even less.
