Summer food fare?

You can add waffles and tacos to the menu of items you'll be able to get at City Park this summer.

Two new vending carts offering up both have been added to the roster of vending operations allowed to serve food at the park this year.

Council Monday approved three year leases to allow Tacofino and Service Star F&B Services (Wafelicious) to set up shop in the plaza adjacent to the Children's Water Park.

Outgoing property manager, Rob Forbes, says six sealed bids were received by the city with Tacofino and Service Star the successful bidders.

They will join Vietnam Village to create what Forbes terms a food vending 'pod' providing locals and visitors the opportunity to try a variety of crafted foods.

Tacofino, which originated in Tofino, will offer a variety of tacos, burritos, tortilla soup and local seasonal fruit specials.

Service Star will offer a a summer menu featuring different types of waffles, hot dogs, chili, fresh fruit and valley apple pie.

Tacofino will pay the city $3,750 per year for the space while Service Star's lease calls for remuneration to the city of $1,500, $1,700 and $1,900 per year over the course of the three years.

Forbes says difference between the two prices is due to the fact the City requested sealed bids and did not set a minimum price.
