Southold Town has issued a warning to wineries about food trucks on their properties.
The town has already begun issuing citations, according to a memo sent to Long Island Wine Council members last week.
The memo said the sale of food by parked food trucks is "not a permitted use outlined in the current code." It also told members the sale of food that's not "directly related to a farm operation will be subject to violations."
Food truck owner Chrissa Schmerler says there is a desire for the trucks. She says the food truck business can't survive on the few carnivals and street fairs a year so that's why the wineries provide another way to make money.
Winery owners say since they are not allowed to have kitchens, having the food trucks on site was a nice alternative.
"I think there should be an easy solution to this," says Anthony Sannino, president of the Long Island Wine Council and a winery owner. "I think the code is probably old. "We're a 40-year-old wine region and I think the code is probably 140 years old. So it's time to just make some room for some provisions."
Town officials say they have been getting complaints from local food businesses and homeowners. The town's attorney says officials are willing to work on a compromise after they conduct a thorough investigation.
