Ohio city plans new laws regulating food trucks

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's capital city is moving toward serving up new regulations for food truck operators.

City officials in Columbus are looking into new laws because of increasing tension between the food truck operators and restaurant owners and neighborhood leaders.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/VfTvUX ) reports trouble has been brewing over the last 18 months with the number of food trucks growing to an estimated 150 around the city.

Complaints center around where the trucks can park, sales taxes and trash left behind by customers.

Some food truck owners say want to abide by the law, but they think the city needs clear guidance on how they need to operate.
