After passing an ordinance in October forbidding food trucks from setting up within 150 feet of brick-and-mortar restaurants, the city will consider a plan to give the mobile food vendors more space to operate.

A bill proposed by Mayor Carolyn Goodman calls for a pilot program allowing food trucks to park along certain public streets when serving customers, as long as food-truck operators feed the meters, too.

The ordinance will be discussed at today’s recommending committee meeting and introduced at Wednesday’s full council meeting. It likely will be scheduled for a public hearing during one of the council’s February meetings.
