Former snow plow sells deep-fried tacos.

The Department of Public Works is getting ready to unveil a new line of food trucks to help feed the city’s seemingly ceaseless appetite for food on the go.  City officials also hope to close the city’s budget gap.

DPW is creating 10 food trucks from former vehicles that served as part of the city’s line of dedicated snow plows.

DPW assistant director Tom Sweet says that global warming is changing the city’s plowing needs and that he and his staff saw an opportunity to re-purpose some equipment that was sitting dormant and scarfing up ever-tighter public dollars
