Battle Creek Restaurant Owners Criticize Plan to Allow Food Trucks

Lead in text: 
Officials have revised the ordinance since public discussion in November
Restaurant owner Ross Simpson said discussions over allowing food trucks in downtown Battle Creek has seemed like "negotiation by ambush" that's "more for show than substance." Reading from a prepared statement, Simpson told city commissioners at their meeting Tuesday night that proposed changes to mobile vending rules have been done "in a relative vacuum" and that downtown restaurant business owners have not been included enough in the process.
