Food truck owner takes issue with permit price in Campbellton

The owners of a Shediac-based food truck is taking issue with how much it will cost her to set up in Campbellton during the summer.

A bylaw in Campbellton sees non-residents charged up to $5,000 a day to sell their wares, an amount Randy O'Brien says is more than what his food makes in the run of a day.

Bathurst's bylaw pegs the same permit at $250.00 per month.

Campbellton mayor Stephanie Anglehart-Paulin says the bylaw is in place to protect local business owners who pay property taxes to the municipality.

O'Brien says Campbellton needs to strike a balance between protecting local businesses and allowing citizens the variety they seek.
