I've never been to Columbiana, Alabama but I can imagine that some cities might reasonably want to restrict long rigs in parts of the city, without any overall prejudice against trucks, trucking, or their drivers. It just depends how the city is laid out: width of streets, types of businesses, traffic patterns, pedestrians, etc. If large trucks do not need to make deliveries in a certain part of the downtown, why do they need to be there?

But no denying there are idiot liberals in some places who hate trucks and can not comprehend the consequences if trucks were banned throughout the whole county or country.

I see big rigs all around big box stores and grocery stores in my city. They don’t bother me. I like the goods they truck in for consumers.

That is generally true but usually trucks are allowed to make deliveries in the in No Truck areas, not just drive through.

This could be an opportunity for a distribution company with step vans and bobtails.

Not a lot of info about the town to go on. Are they on a US Highway? probably not on an Interstate. At that size they probably don’t have a bypass. A town that size should welcome the truck traffic. There are some small towns in this area on US64 that all have signs in town “NO Jake Brakes” it comes with your territory
