WINONA, Minn. (WKBT) - Some food truck ordinances in Winona are being pulled back to allow more vendors to operate in the city.
Food truck vendors can now work in a larger part of Winona's downtown area.
The new locations include the Kiwanis Shelter at Prairie Island, Levee Park's Cal Fremling Drive, and Main Street north of Second.
The City Council considered allowing trucks to work in the entire downtown area and removing the requirement that food truck operators have a building location as well, but decided against those changes.
"A lot of the younger people in this community really do love food trucks, and I'm sure they would like to see it opened up throughout the downtown. There's a good chance that will happen eventually, but I think the Council wanted to take it in smaller steps to begin with," said Mayor Mark Peterson.
Winona's mayor is optimistic the additional food truck locations along with new developments and events will help revitalize the city's downtown area.
