TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The Tupelo City Council says there is no ordinance when it comes to food trucks. 

That's why members of the council had a meeting with food truck owners Tuesday afternoon to discuss possible rules and regulations. 

Council members asked the owners questions like, "Should there be a zone rule?" "Do you think there needs to be something in writing?"  "What would happen if people didn't follow the rules?"

Many new and longtime food truck businesses expressed their opinions. 

No rules were crafted during or after the meeting. 

The council plans to meet with restaurant owners in January.
