NEW BRUNSWICK - Rutgers' famous "grease trucks" may have to move from their 20-year home at the end of College Avenue.
The university reportedly may put the spots in Lot 8 up for public bid, allowing any food truck to make an offer. The university claims it loses $20,000 a year covering the cost of cleanup, grease removal and paying for extra security on weekends when there are large crowds. The owners of the trucks fear they could be forced to move from their spots and say they'll do anything to comply with other issues the school has. Truck owners say higher rent or making them park offsite overnight could put them out of business.
A committee of students and university officials is looking into options for the future of campus "grease trucks." Rutgers will also survey students about the types of food they want served at food trucks in the future.
