Food Trucks Talk to Arlington; Meatball Nation Launches

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-]
