Permits for Food Carts?
By an edhat reader
I was wondering if anyone knew what's up with these food carts that are popping up around town? When I've looked I haven't seen the Santa Barbara County Health Department tag and date on any of them.
I asked a few owners and the two that replied said they didn't need them. I'm surprised if that's the case and I also wonder if their food is applicable to sales tax, etc, or if any of them have a city business license. I reached out to the county health department and didn't get any sort of reply. Considering how the city pretty much ran out a bunch of food trucks I find that these aren't regulated strange.
