Mayor says New Year’s Eve celebrations could involve food trucks.

During an appearance this evening on WGBH’s “Greater Boston” show Boston Mayor Tom Menino hinted that we could see some of the city’s new food trucks in operation on city streets on New Year’s Eve. “We’re working on that,” the mayor said in response to a question from host Emily Rooney towards the end of the interview. Rooney then put in a plug for one of the new grilled cheese trucks in the city. Mayor Menino also restated his full support for bringing more food trucks to Boston, citing his surprisingly delcious encounter with the soy BLT at the Clover truck by South Station. The Boston City Council last week proposed a plan to regulate the growing food truck movement here in Boston.
