That’s Main Street Pizza Company owner Jamie Dove’s solution to the debate over a food truck ordinance in Johnson City. Tonight’s City Commission meeting is set to include the second reading of a change in an ordinance, which would exclude food trucks in the rule to keep vendors off of public sidewalks and spaces.

Most older mobile food trucks with non-electronic ignitions should be tuned every 10,000 to 12,000 miles or every year, whichever comes first. Newer trucks with electronic ignition and fuel injection systems are scheduled to go from 25,000 miles to as many as 100,000 miles without needing a major tune-up.
