    IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) Iowa City officials are considering allowing more mobile food vendors in addition those already serving the downtown pedestrian mall.
    The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports (http://icp-c.com/1pcLbWf ) the Iowa City Council showed interest Tuesday in instituting a food truck pilot program this summer. Geoff Fruin, the assistant to the city manager, says the pilot could run from mid-July to late October.
    The proposal comes in response to residents seeking more mobile vending opportunities. It would allow mobile vendors at three new sites.
    Fruin says the program could prove to be a learning opportunity to see if changes to the city's current mobile vending policy are needed. He says the council could discuss long-term solutions over the winter following the pilot's implementation.
    The council plans to vote on the program June 3.
