Paul Nelson, KSL Newsradio Salt Lake City will be getting some harsh criticism in a letter today. Latino advocates say new regulations over taco cart operators are unfair.

One of the new regulations requires cart operators to have a written agreement to use the bathroom of a nearby business.

Salt Lake City Councilwoman Nancy Saxton got a complaint from one property owner. "There were people that were coming to buy tacos, in particular, and they were defecating in his parking lot," she explained.

Latino advocate John Renteria says that doesn't justify new rules. "There are already laws on the books that can be enforced when it comes to those kinds of activities," he said.

Other regulations require cart operators to stay in a specific location instead of being allowed to move. Also, neighboring businesses are allowed to comment before a vendor gets a license.
