Food truck rules questioned

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Food truck vendors are expressing concerns over new rules from City Hall.

A pilot program was unveiled yesterday that requires inspections and sets up specific locations where the trucks can park.

The operators are taking issue with the parking space rules, saying the “first come, first served” requirement could put some of them out of business.

The proposed pilot program is intended to “responsibly guide the growth of the mobile food truck industry,” according to a spokesman for Columbus City Council.

It would affect mobile food vendors, including food trucks, push carts, and ice cream trucks.
