A lot of people love to eat at food trucks, but not everyone likes to look at them, and that is the case in Madison. 

For months, the Board of Selectmen has been entertaining what to do with the food trucks that have become quite popular in town. 

Well it appears the selectmen have figured out what to do with the, 

The selectmen voted Monday night to move food trucks that have been stationed on School Street to Academy Street, which is near the Academy School, the New Haven Register reports. 

In Madison, the food trucks have become quite popular but some residents felt they didn’t belong so close to the town Green. 

The new rule goes into effect June 16. There will be enough room for about six or seven food trucks, the Register reports. They will be able to operate from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. and will have to pay an annual fee of $500.

I personally think the food trucks add a certain charm to the town, especially in the summer. I also think having them along Academy street (with church and ball field parking) will be a nightmare of congestion. Whose idea was this location- and the annual fee?

Shame on me, I guess, for not attending the town meetings and speaking up. Big loss for the town; the food trucks were a big draw for our farmers market. Hopefully they find a welcome town in one of our neighbors. I'll happily travel to Guilford to buy cupcakes and tacos. I'll probably patronize some of the shops around the Guilford Green while I'm there.

I am so disappointed in the towns decision . I think it added charm to our town . They even have art trucks now . I do not think having them on Academy St is a good idea, too congested.

Put the trucks back in the parking lot. On Academy street with baseball, funerals at st. Margaret and people trying to park to buy food will be too congested.

Why is the town of Madison so against having food options for it's residents? They closed The popular "Madison Bistro," then "Flavor" last year (on a technicality), and now the charming food trucks. All tasty and different food options. It seems the town of Madison only supports and protects high end restuarants as "cafe Allegro' and "bar Bouche" (rumor has it bar Bouche is opening another delicious high end eatery). Meanwhile we watch businesses and customers go to Guilford while watching our taxes increase. Madison's new town business motto must be Marie Antoinette's 'let them eat cake!"
