ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany's downtown manager is excited about new rules city commissioners passed that he hopes will attract more food trucks downtown.

Commissioners unanimously approved an amendment to an ordinance that will allow food trucks to use public streets downtown. 

They can now set up in parallel parking spots as long as they don't block other businesses. 

"In reality we're probably fix, six, seven years behind the food truck craze.  But we need to stay and continue to get ahead of what's going on in the rest of the United States," Aaron Blair, downtown manager.

Blair hopes the new rules will attract more venders and stimulate downtown revitalization.
