PEORIA, Ill. (AP) - Unsightly food trucks are a concern for officials in the central Illinois city of Peoria.

The (Peoria) Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1y7G11k ) Mayor Jim Ardis and Councilwoman Denise Moore are worried about how food trucks would appear during discussion of an ordinance.

Ardis says the city could “end up with ‘The Beverly Hillbillies’ possum and vittles” if they don’t set expectations on how the trucks should look. Moore says there should be a limit on the number allowed to operate to avoid making the area look “kind of junky.”

The proposed ordinance would allow for 13 food trucks or carts to operate downtown.

It also would direct food truck operations away from downtown restaurants.
