Rochester City Council votes Tuesday  on whether or not to allow food truck vending in downtown.

As part of a pilot program, two food trucks would be allowed to operate on State, Andrews and Broad Streets. Vending service would run from June through the end of the year.

Council President Lovely Warren says some people have closed up shop to go into the food truck business:           

"We realize and recognize that Rochester is starting to be a new hub for food and truck vending, and we wanted to be able to provide these services to the community but like other cities regulate locations and other things.”

Food truck vendors pay a 750 dollar fee for the six month trial. The council votes on the new regulations Tuesday night.
