COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's largest city has decided to let food trucks operate from specified public parking spaces under a pilot program as officials look to regulate that growing segment of food service.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/15S5Ipo ) reports that Columbus City Council approved the program Monday. Sixteen pre-approved parking spaces in certain parts of the city will be open to food trucks daily on a first-come, first-served basis.

Owners of food trucks complained the program has too many requirements and too few approved parking spaces. Vendors who sell food from permanent locations have grumbled that they'll have difficulty competing with the food trucks.

Councilwoman Michelle Mills says the panel hopes to get feedback about the pilot program before finalizing local regulations on the issue.
