LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Las Vegas City Council unanimously approved a motion Wednesday on three special downtown parking spaces that would allow food trucks to operate legally.

Under the proposal, each of the three spaces can be leased for $5 an hour by food trucks.

The vote was 6-0 for the spaces, with Mayor Carolyn Goodman absent.

The proposal was created after a vote last October that banned food trucks from setting up within 150 feet from brick and mortar restaurants.

Violations of the ordinance will carry fines of up to $1,000 and/or six months in jail.
