Proposed food truck rules go back to Ohio mayor

"The traditional classroom style was not the best way to teach this type of information ... Once the guys were able to see hands on what it meant to run a business using the food truck as a classroom, it completely changed what they thought," Harris said.

'What the Truck' food truck wants to operate in the City of Grand Rapids. Normally food trucks aren't allowed to set-up in Grand Rapids except for certain special events.

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Proposed regulations for food trucks in a northwestern Ohio city have gone back to the mayor for more discussion after opposition from supporters of the mobile businesses.

The Blade newspaper in Toledo reportsthat Toledo City Council declined to vote on Mayor Michael Collins' proposals last week. The regulations would have required operators of food trucks to apply for permits that could cost up to $1,000 per year and to obtain $1 million in liability insurance. The businesses also would be required to operate only during certain hours and in certain locations.
Owners of food trucks blasted the proposals at last week's hearing.
Collins later told the council the proposal was the beginning of a working document. He said he was taking it back and would await further discussion.
