Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Restaurant owners in downtown Las Vegas are still fighting to keep food trucks out of their neighborhoods and away from their businesses.
They claim that the food trucks are eating into their profits by being parked too close to their brick-and-mortar establishments.
A committee for the Las Vegas City Council voted Tuesday in favor of a 300-foot buffer zone between food trucks and restaurants.
The restaurant owners were actually requesting for a buffer zone of 800 to 1,000 feet.
The full council is expected to take up the issue at its Aug. 15 meeting.
