Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The fight between food trucks and local restaurants could be resolved soon.
An ordinance has been proposed that would designate special parking for food trucks.
Mayor Carolyn Goodman made the proposal on Tuesday, which would make it easier for food trucks to conduct business downtown.
The plan proposes a pilot program that would set aside popular spots such as Third Street in front of the Regional Justice Center and Bonneville Avenue near the Downtown Transportation Center. Another spot would be near City Hall.
Restaurant owners downtown have complained that the food trucks are hurting their businesses.
The City Council's recommending committee voted 3-0 for the proposal. It will now go to the full council to be approved.
The council also considered spots near the Fremont East Entertainment District but met resistance from some of the business owners in the area.
