Food Trucks Approved

"A unanimous City Council vote Monday night established the regulatory framework for licensing and operation of the mobile food vendors. Although councilors voted as a unified bloc to approve the recommendations that originated with a specially created food truck task force and sent to them by their Public Safety, Health, and Human Services Committee with minor amendments, city residents who commented on the issue were divided." - Forecaster
