SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Springfield City Council met Monday night to discuss creating an ordinance to regulate food trucks. City Councilor Marcus Williams told 22News that the new ordinance would address issues that include identifying places for trucks to park.

Current food truck operators are often ticketed downtown, and city councilors worked at Monday’s meeting to come to a consensus on the ideal location for food trucks to operate.

“Young millennials are flocking to Springfield, I’d like to believe that, and we need a central place,” said Councilor Williams. “Some people don’t always have the luxury of dining in for lunch during normal business hours, and a food truck gives people the option.”

So far, the City Council has agreed on designating spots in Riverfront Park for food trucks, but other downtown locations are still being debated.
