The fuss over a proposed taco truck in downtown Columbia is parked until next spring.
Truck operator David Roberts put his proposal on hold for a year Wednesday after it drew objections.
"The timing is wrong," he told City Council. "I have the flexibility not to be there right now. The little guy will get out of the way."
His plan created heartburn for operators of two restaurants opening at Main and Gervais streets, an area where city leaders want more businesses.
Both worried a truck selling food outdoors would be more competition than their fledgling operations could withstand.
