WORCESTER — A City Council committee looking to create a more friendly environment for food truck vendors has broached the idea of establishing areas in the city where they would be allowed to conduct business by right.

The focus would be in the downtown, especially around Worcester Common, but it would also include other neighborhoods and parks.

As part of the idea being bandied about by the City Council Economic Development Committee, food truck operators would be required to pay a fee and be permitted by the city for the right to operate in those designated areas.
