Chattanooga food trucks are here to stay thanks to city council members.

After much debate, the Chattanooga City Council voted to extend their ordinance.

That also means food trailers must be attached to a vehicle at all times.

Other rules include a time limit as to how long a food truck can stay on their designated lot.

Food truck vendors do have some leeway, though, when it comes to setting up shop at special events.

Justin Bennett, owner of a new food truck called Local Slice, says, he's happy with the ordinance.

Bennett adds, "I think the city just want to keep the city looking clean and nice, and that was their motive behind not letting trailers park overnight and stay attached to the trucks. We've come to a good place."

There are about a handful of food trucks in Chattanooga, but that number, we're told, is growing pretty fast.
