Patrick Coolican reports in the Weekly's news blog, this afternoon a City Council committee heard testimony on how exactly to regulate the food trucks that have set off a minor food fight along Wilshire Boulevard and other food-truck-heavy areas. Councilmen Tom LaBonge and others discussed, among other issues, the possibility of creating special parking zones and capping the number of trucks. For a report on the meeting, read Coolican's story.
