Foreclosures during the Great Recession added to thousands of blighted properties in Columbus. But, a state program helped fund demolition of many of those houses and apartment units.
City Council Approves New Food Truck Regs
Columbus City Council has approved new regulations to let food trucks operate on city streets.
The city last year created a pilot program that was called too restrictive by many truck operators.
The new rules let trucks reserve one of 20 spots, and also use the first or last parking spot on any city block. Street parking will require a $250 annual fee.
Traditional restaurants can file an appeal with the city if a food truck is parked near their establishment.
