The city of East Lansing has reinstated a pilot program to allow food trucks and carts to test the downtown market.

The program will allow the mobile vendors to set up shop downtown between March and May at a rate of $100 for two weeks.

The city will offer the springtime trial period for the next three years.  It was approved during Tuesday night's council meeting.

The Mayor of East Lansing said, "we're trying to become a more diverse downtown with different offerings."  Up to nine food carts and nine food trucks will be allowed to participate.  Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
