Below is a message from the City of Burien:
Council to discuss food trucks at next meeting
The City of Burien launched the Burien Food Truck Pilot Program in 2021 to test the efficacy of food truck businesses in Burien. The program was extended by the Burien City Council in 2022 and is set to expire on June 30, 2023. Five food trucks were approved to operate in Burien during the first year of the pilot program. Only one food truck still operates in Burien with any regularity.
The Burien Business and Economic Development Partnership (BEDP), a City Council advisory board comprised of business owners and Burien residents, discussed the program at their May 26 meeting. After receiving an update on the program from City staff, they discussed whether they wished to recommend ending, extending, or making the pilot program a permanent City program.
The BEDP voted to recommend that the City Council end the food truck pilot program with no additional action.
You are invited to share your opinions about or experience with the Burien Food Truck Pilot Program with the City Council!
On June 5, the City Council will receive an update on the status of the program and the BEDP’s recommendations, and discuss potential next steps. Here is the Council meeting agenda.
Burien City Council Meeting
