Food Trucks Talk to Arlington; Meatball Nation Launches

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

ARLINGTON— The Food Trucks Association has had some promising conversations about eventually extending the amount of time Arlington food trucks can park at a single location, exec director Che Ruddell-Tabisola tells Eater. Right now, trucks can only park for 60 minutes at a time, and risk a misdemeanor charge requiring a court appearance, not to mention a fine, if they break the rule. The group is also seeking clarification on where exactly trucks must relocate once they move. [-EDC-]
