Trial run for expanding Albany food truck sites

The city of Albany announced this week that it will be running a pilot program to test expanding the areas in which food trucks and other mobile food vendors are allowed, from now through October. From the release: "Permits will be able for 3 vendors to locate in Washington Park and Lincoln Park, and 5 vendors to locate in public right-of-ways in the City." From 2013: Where the food trucks are. And aren't. And why.

YES!!

YES!!!

All well and good, but don't cry about not having brick and mortar lunch establishments downtown when winter rolls around...

If you own a restaurant in downtown and you go out of business because people choose food made in a truck over your actual brick and mortar restaurant, than you deserve to go out of business. Make great food, watch the people line up.

Make crappy food and hope that you are the only option...well you were in the wrong line of work anyway because obviously you are ok with mediocre food.
