MCC gives mobile food truck licences to 28 operators

MIRI: The Miri City Council (MCC) has approved mobile food truck licences for 28 operators to conduct their business activities at 11 designated areas throughout the city.

Miri Mayor Adam Yii said the 11 designated areas are along Jalan Raja, Taman Awam car park, Awal Commercial Centre at Emart Riam area, Luak Esplanade (bus parking lot), Boulevard Commercial Centre, Taman Bulatan (car park), Lutong (gravel area in front Sarawak International Music Academy), Permy Mall (gravel area), the car park in front of Miri Indoor Stadium, the Old Ferry Point at Kuala Baram and Wireless Walk at North Yu Seng Road.

“The (area with the) most number of food trucks are the five units located at the Old Ferry Point in Kuala Baram followed by four units at Wireless Walk and others with two units each,” he told the press after chairing a full council meeting at MCC’s chamber meeting room yesterday.

He added the food truck operators have to adhere to the daily operating business hours which have been fixed by the council based on the respective areas.

“There are two types of business operation hours which are set from 8am until 2am and another time slot is from 5pm until 2am.

“A total of five areas have been designated for the mobile food operators to start their business from morning until 2am. They are Taman Awam’s car park, Luak Esplanade, Taman Bulatan, Indoor Stadium and the Old Ferry Point. The remaining areas are subject to the evening business hours.”

In view of this, he reminded the operators to abide with the licensing terms and conditions on the need to practise cleanliness and ensure the food that they are going to sell are safe for consumption.

He said the council will keep an eye on the designated areas in order to ensure only licensed operators are allowed to conduct their business activities at particular areas.

On an unrelated issue, Yii revealed the council thus far this year has terminated two grass cutting contracts in March.

He said the termination of the contracts was due to unsatisfactory services given by the contractor.

“The contractor has failed to deliver the service accordingly although the council has given the contractor sufficient time and opportunities to improve their service performance.”
