Bow Island town council voted (3-4) against the location of a potential food truck business at 102 7th Avenue West at its March 25 meeting.
Parking was the main concern and how it affects other vendors using the site and competing with businesses that rent a piece of the property and pay taxes.
The business partners were planning to rent part of the site for their business from April to September.
The business was planning to sell tacos, burgers and burritos.
Council approved the motion for public works to trade Unit 132 and purchase a new case SV300 from Ag-Plus Mechanical for the price of $5,666 to be funded from the equipment reserve.
