     >>Chef Aaron Crumbaugh’s truck is equipped to cook on-board even when laws didn't permit it; he calls his operation an “underground truck,” though most of his business is for private events. “[The city] obviously know that I cook, but I’ve never gotten a ticket, which is cool,” he said. He said that some organization on the part of food truck operators could be helpful when it comes to the specific “food stall” areas to be designated by the city. “Getting together with other food trucks to do our own separate lottery so 10 people aren’t driving up for the same spot … as far as owners go, we need to all get together and figure that out,” he said. “Every truck could get their fair share of a spot.”
