COVINGTON, Ky. - The city of Covington wants to cash in on two growing trends, but first the official zoning ordinance of the city must be relaxed.

Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to make changes to the zoning ordinance to allow food trucks and micro-distilleries.

The city tested the popularity of food trucks last week with it's Food Truck Invasion. Four mobile food vendors gathered outside city hall to serve meals on wheels. According to one blog, 400 orders were taken at the four vendors.

Commissioners will also make changes in the zoning ordinance to allow micro-distilleries in commercial and industrial areas of the river town.

A micro-distillery is a small distillery that produces beverage grade alcohol in small amounts.

In June, The Party Source in Newport announced it was creating its own Kentucky bourbon micro-distillery.
