The Councilors who voted against the ordinance said they did so to protect restaurants in New Bedford’s business districts.

The Council also amended the ordinance, calling on police to strictly enforce the new law, and crack down on trucks that do not follow the new rules.

The Council also saluted Suzanne Braga for her 20 years of working with neighborhood groups as a founder of Neighborhoods United.
