Food vendors line the streets of downtown Lexington as people attend holiday celebrations. But this doesn’t mean the controversial issues of food trucks are done.

“It’s a lot of fun. The biggest thing is getting to go to really big events and getting to meet new people all the time,” said Sean Tibbetts, owner of Cluckin’ Burger.

Tibbetts said the new food truck program, which came after months of debate eased the regulation and permitting process. But two obstacles he sees with the pilot program are the lack of parking spaces and 2-hour parking limits before 5 p.m.

“Ultimately the State Health Department is who regulates food trucks and what they can and cannot do,” Renee Jackson, President of Downtown Lexington Corporation, said.

Jackson said most of the food trucks won’t be at the events this weekend because they didn’t want to pay the entrance fee.

She added the food truck pilot program will be re-evaluated after six months before it becomes a city ordinance.
