Meeting about food trucks in Albany

food trucks at the capitol 2013 summerThe city of Albany has a public meeting about food trucks lined up for this coming Monday (March 30) at 5 pm at city hall. Press release blurbage:

What are your thoughts on food trucks in Albany? If you'd like to see more of them, where should they go and when should they operate? What did you like about last year's Mobile Food Vendor Pilot Program, and what would you like to see changed?
This Monday, March 30th, at 5 p.m. in the rotunda of City Hall, a meeting will be held to discuss these questions and explore what worked and what can be improved on last year's Mobile Food Vendor Pilot Program, which ran from August to October 2014. The City is looking to launch a revised food vendor pilot program this spring.

The meeting is open to the public, and the city says it welcomes attendance from business owners, including food truck operators and owners of fixed-location restaurants.

Here's the city's information about the food truck pilot program it ran last year.

Can the food truck come to my house , and deliver? Euro Delicasies from Armin is my favorite. Armin makes the best stuffed cabbage, peppers, baklava, sweet potato salad, so many other things. They would win on Kelly, (and what's his name, took over for Regis fellow)? That chicken sandwich place, formerly a restaurant place in Troy. What the heck is it's name? It was near Verdille's in north Troy, and now a banquet hall? I would like crepes, and soft ice cream, and mini hot dogs. But, my dream food truck would be a Carnagie deli food truck delivering nice pink, sliced thin, marbled corned beef sandwiches, mocha, butter cream seven layer cake !

One station reported that the city will continue to take public comments on this matter until mid April but I have no idea where to direct these comments... (couldn't make it to the thing last night) Any ideas?

@Paul: Comments can be emailed to Kate Lawrence in the planning department:
