Something new is coming to Northport: the city will host its first-ever 'Trucks By The Tracks' event from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, May 26, 2016. City officials have designated the area of Main Avenue's south end near the railroad tracks as the event site. A variety of food trucks will be on-hand for the first "Trucks By The Tracks" event, and the community is invited to join the fun.

District 2 Councilman Jay Logan told WVUA 23 that Northport has had a food truck ordinance since 2015, and that the city wanted to use the "Trucks By The Tracks" event to gague the community's interest in the food truck industry.

Food trucks are only allowed to operate on private property in Northport, and there is a city ordinance preventing them from operating within 500 feet of a similar business.
