WATSONVILLE — The Watsonville City Council delayed its decision on allowing food trucks to operate downtown after the original proposal was modified during the Tuesday night meeting.

The proposal by councilmember Oscar Rios would allow food trucks to sell their wares on Peck Street downtown from 9 p.m. to midnight Fridays and Saturdays for a three-month trial period.

However, councilmember Emilio Martinez said the hours were too short.

“The only thing that brings in diversity is competition,” he said. “That’s not competition from 9 o’clock on. Competition is 6 o’clock on.”

The council decided to postpone its decision to discuss the new hours with the surrounding businesses downtown.

“Although competition is great, we did not indicate that in the information we sent out,” said council member Nancy Bilicich.
