(WBIR - Knoxville, TN) As the food truck trend continues to grow in cities across the country, leaders in Knoxville are looking to put more regulations in place for trucks in their city. The city is set to hold a meeting Wednesday to formally discuss food truck regulation.
Knoxville Downtown coordinator Rick Emmett said an ordinance enacted in the 1960s prohibits food trucks from selling their products in the public right of way. They can only do so if a special event is taking place.
But, Emmett said a lot of people want that to change, so the city is looking at how pilot programs have been implemented in other cities like Lexington, Louisville and Nashville.
Wednesday's meeting is open to the public.
