Congratulations, Somerville: You're Getting Food Trucks

New, 1 comment

Things didn't look good for food trucks in Somerville when a public meeting about the issue was cancelled because city officials failed to show, but after months of weighing the matter, the verdict is in: food trucks are coming to Somerville. Last night the city tweeted that officials approved a new food truck ordinace, declaring "Let the food on wheels begin!" The Somerville Patch reports that the trucks can operate from 8am to 9pm and maybe longer if they get "special permission," that they'll be "encouraged to use compostable utensils" and offer healthy options. What trucks would you like to see here?
