If Yuba City allows Paul Kaiser to serve his ball-park franks, business owners want a level playing field.
Some might say they got it, at least for now.
The Yuba City City Council voted unanimously to authorize staff to enter agreements for temporary vending permits for Fat Daddy’s Frankfurters and Fotine’s Simply Greek Cafe. The permit is for one year or until the council makes its final decision on mobile vending, which is expected to take 90 to 120 days.
The council also directed staff to move ahead with developing a long-term ruling on mobile vending.
After the council’s decision Tuesday night, Kaiser said he has mixed emotions. While relieved he can maintain his livelihood, he is still worried about what the City Council may eventually decide.
“We are very excited to see things are going to change — and hopefully for the better,” he said.

He had received permission to operate under the city’s Municipal Code, which allows for mobile units by permission from the police department.
