A battle over bites, between restaurants and truckies. Food truck support in Jacksonville Beach is growing... and supporters argue this growth will NOT eat away at other businesses. 3 Andrew Ferenc with "On the Fly" food truck, tells Channel 4, expanding business to the beaches is closer than ever to becoming a reality. Right now there's a ban on food trucks in Neptune, Atlantic and Jacksonville beaches. But last night, Jacksonville Beach leaders are leaning in favor of an ordinance that would change all of that. Channel 4's Vic Micolucci joins us now LIVE from Jacksonville Beach... and Vic, there seems to be both excitement and concern about this.. 3 The majority of the people that I talked to are in favor of it.They think food trucks are great and could bring more people to the beach. BUT...some are worried they could take a bite out of business from the brick- and-mortar restaurants that have been here.... 3 00-0620-2655-1;011:07- 1:131:31Ferenc 15:39 our shrimp and pork and chicken quesadillas Andrew Ferenc serves up a gourmet lunch out of On The Fly food truck every weekday in downtown Jacksonville ...13:43 in my kitchen, I do everything the same as I would in a restaurant.Last night, he was at a Jax Beach city council meeting, pushing to be able to expand his business tot he coastal community.14:22 I think food trucks will bring people to the beach beach and bringing people to the beach is good for business for anybody, any of the businesses at the beach. The food trucks may bring them out and they'll disperse to the other local businesses.As it stands, food trucks are banned at the beach... but last night city council voted 5 to 2 to allow them... it's not the final decision...but the ordinance could pass in the next couple weeks.Latham 18:19 it's a one year program Mayor Charlie Latham voted yes...but says strict regulations will protect everyone involved. It's likely the city will have a one-year test period.21:31 we are going to watch closely for the next year, see how it affects the businesses, and we're not going to do anything long-term that's going to affect negatively our businesses. But we think that it could possibly even enhance business downtown.41:20 but some are worried the food trucks could hurt the restaurants that have already been here. And the hundreds of people who make their livings working at them.Malin 34:50 This was the original Angie's, right here.The owner of Angie's Subs, a staple for sandwiches at the beach, says he's in favor of food trucks, and wants to have some rent space on his property...but he's not happy with the way the proposed ordinance is written right now.27:27 it allows new restaurants to come in and not incur the costs that all the guys that are here today have to incur.And to me that creates an injustice.28:50 "Therefore they can sell their sandwich at a lower price. And it creates an uneven playing field. That's unjust." 3 So there are still some details up for debate BEFORE the final vote...the city council is scheduled to come back together and make a decision on February 3rd. In Jacksonville Beach, Vic Micolucci, Ch4, TLS. 3 Vic, under the current plan, would the food trucks be able to set up anywhere?
