A mystery to passersby. That is what the commented wooden panels, built on the back of the food trucks located in one of the iconic tourist spots of the regional capital, became in principle.

They will remove questioned wooden panels in Valdivia
A plotter or graph to cover the back of the cars. That, according to tenants, was the purpose of the aforementioned panels, at the initiative of the municipality in conversation with the owners.
However, the president of the group of historic food trucks, Yocasta Rioseco, pointed out that they themselves had to pay for the materials and labor, although after criticism, they will be withdrawn.
“(…) We had to agree because at the beginning it was the plotting of the cars, but we didn't want to because each one has their own identity,” said the tenant.
He also said that “the municipality had to do this unification, so we had to accept it”.
The above was also confirmed by the official of the community development department of the municipality, Astrid Aburto, who assured that there will be no compensation for the tenants, without ruling out that the structures could be used in another way.
“(…) We reached good terms with them, we have been in talks. This is something that can be reused. Let's test how this might work,” Aburto said.
Visual identity of the sector
However, outside the microphone, other tenants They assured that they did not agree with the initiative.
From the communications area of the Municipality of Valdivia they specified that they will make adjustments to the project, to comply with aesthetic purposes.
Nor did they detail what the new proposal will be for the idea of unifying the sector's visual identity, for the summer season. In which, as we know, the arrival of tourists to that point of the city increases considerably.
