Des Moines approves food truck expansion

Food trucks are now allowed on Des Moines' streets during special events under a new rule approved by the City Council this week.Why it matters: "Receptions on wheels" are becoming a big thing for weddings and other special gatherings.Ordinances that limited the trucks to specific zones and parks were suppressing our party life.State of play: The ordinance change was prompted by the Des Moines Heritage Center, a downtown events venue centered around an historic depot. It's located just outside of zones that allow food trucks and that was limiting its options, Councilperson Carl Voss told Axios this week.Special event permits now allow food trucks to operate on public streets in commercial or mixed-use locations that are outside of the zones.🗯 Our thought bubble: We hope this means we see Pho Wheels and Sushi a bit more frequently.
