Greensboro, NC -- On Wednesday, Greensboro City Council gave food trucks the green light to operate downtown, but not just anywhere and it wasn't without plenty of controversy.

More than a dozen downtown restaurant owners spoke out against reversing the food truck ban.  They said the Food Truck Pilot Program has been hurting their business.  Some of them said business was down more than 30 percent.

Nevertheless, the revisions to the Food Truck Ordinance passed.

Food trucks will be allowed to park on private property in the Downtown Greensboro area with permission from the property owner. 

Additionally, food trucks must park at least 50 feet away from the main entrance of a restaurant.

The ordinance passed by a 6 to 2 vote.

City Council will take a look at how the new Food Truck Ordinance is working in six months.

The Food Truck Pilot Program will continue through the end of November.
