Food truck on back burner
G2 Gallery unable to secure truck in time for this season

Jefferson City changed its ordinances three months ago to allow for mobile food units, but no units have sprung up yet, not even from the business that initially pushed for the changes.
In January, the owners of G2 Gallery made a presentation requesting the city amend the temporary food licenses ordinance to allow for mobile food trucks, saying they hoped to start such a unit in spring. The changes were approved by the City Council in March, allowing for mobile food units on private lots throughout the city.
As of Friday, city staff member Debbie Hartley said, the city had received one application for a license for a mobile food unit from Jamie Avila, of California, for La Michoacana Market.
