(BLOOMINGTON) - The Bloomington City Council is considering putting new restrictions on food trucks and carts.

After hearing public comment on the restrictions the council took a preliminary vote - four voted in favor of the ordinance and two against, with one abstaining.

The ordinance would restrict food trucks and carts within 50 feet away from a brick and mortar restaurant and allowing only a certain amount of vendors downtown. It also puts restrictions on when the street vendors can operate.

Both restaurant owners and food truck and cart owners are not opposed to regulations, but they want more concrete rules. Both sides want to come to a working agreement.

A major issue expressed was how to enforce the new rules. Some suggested police get involved, while others claim police don't have the time and wouldn't enforce regulations.

The final vote will come at the December 3 city council meeting.
