Great news for people who like burning food truck tacos in their backyard!  Or, great news for people who enjoy eating yummy food truck food!  And, great news for people who like bonfires!

OK, joking aside, Grand Rapids passed two new ordinances yesterday that are pretty cool!  The first of the ordinances allows food trucks to operate inside the city limits of Grand Rapids. This ordinance expands the amount of areas that the trucks are allowed to operate, in addition to giving some restrictions on noise and exhaust pollution.

The second ordinance will allow Grand Rapids residents to have fire pits in their backyards. These fire pits will require a permit and can only be used inside of certain restrictions.
