PRESS RELEASE: Food truck event features Council on your car stereo

The Food Truck Grab-N-Go is 4 to 9 p.m. Saturday at Shopper’s Haven on Loveland-Madeira Road across from Loveland Elementary School (map).

Loveland City Council members will be on hand to greet attendees (at a socially-safe distance) and answer questions submitted on-site.

“As elected leaders of this community, Loveland City Council members are always looking for opportunities to connect with residents. It has been particularly challenging this year with the pandemic and all the related safety precautions,” Loveland Mayor Kathy Bailey said. “We are thrilled to participate in the (Little Miami River Chamber Alliance’s) Food Truck Grab-N-Go to engage with residents, and also excited that we have found a way to connect safely. We are really looking forward to it,” said Bailey.

As a means to accommodate resident questions in a safe and distanced manner, Council members will utilize an on-site radio transmitter to read submitted questions and their responses. Residents parked in the vicinity will then be able to tune to a specific FM frequency to hear the Q&A from their own vehicles.

“The dynamic of this Q&A reminds me of a drive-in movie,” Little Miami River Chamber Alliance President Cee Cee Collins said. “Residents can pick up dinner from 11 food trucks on-site and then eat in their cars while listening to the questions and responses from Council members. It’s fun and it’s innovative.”

At the Food Truck Grab-N-Go on Saturday, residents can submit their questions at the designated Loveland City Council booth. Instructions for tuning in will be shared on-site as well. In addition, questions and answers will later be posted to the City of Loveland website.
