Maine town limits the number of food trucks

Mount Desert, Maine lawmakers have approved a plan to create a new location for food trucks but denied a proposal to increase the number of food trucks from two to three after restaurant owners and others objected, according to the Mount Desert Islander.

Harbor Committee Chairman Rick Savage said adding another food truck would guarantee failure for all of them. 

The plan includes extending electrical hookups from the harbormaster's building to the food truck sites, providing a crushed stone base for the sites and possibly creating a walkway across the park to the food trucks and farmers market. 

The selectmen voted to approve the new locations for the farmers market and food trucks at the marina and to limit the number of food trucks to two.
