WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Food trucks posted up in a usual spot in downtown D.C. on Monday but they weren’t serving up any dishes.
Instead, when hungry people lined up on their lunch breaks, they were given a glimpse of what the city’s food truck service might look like if D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray’s proposal regulating food trucks passes through the city council.
Gray’s proposed regulations would limit food trucks to certain locations in the city and also put a cap on the number of trucks in each location.
The 17 food trucks that participated in Monday’s “Day Without a Food Truck” parked at Farragut Square and asked supporters to write to the city council and urge them to reject Gray’s proposed regulations.
The council is holding its first hearing on the proposal Friday.
