Just create a NewGRF where your town buildings can stockpile. GameScripts can control how much of any item a city needs in a month to grow.

something like drop it off outside the city and have a single truck trickle it in to "make it last" until the next shipment.
In my opinion, that's a perfectly good solution called a distributor service. Basically, you manage the stockpile yourself by keeping it in a station.

But if you don't like the fact that cargo requirements don't scale with the town size, there is a game script called "Neighbours are important". It increases the cargo requirements as the town grows, and after some point the town needs new types of cargo! The towns are also capable of stockpiling the deliveries for the next month.

Town buildings can't stockpile, and even if they could NewGRFs can't override the default food/water mechanic. GameScript is definitely the easiest option to achieve different town growth mechanics.

Yeti extended industries changed the subtropical water mechanic to building materials, which is a good idea.
Towns need building materials to grow instead of water and if you want to stop them growing (in singleplayer), you simple deliver building materials to the port in exchange for food. It wouldn't make sense to stop food or water supply for towns if they get too large. Even A-train has building materials.
Another nice thing about subtropical is that it has two nice contrasting groundtextures.
Looks good in 32-bpp graphics. I like trucks and trains in zbase, unfortunately it's not possible to refit.
