Food trucks fight back after LoDo ban prevents them from operating

source: 9 news

DENVER — On a street packed with bars, Sanjin Mutic found his spot at a parking meter near 20th and Larimer streets.
For years now, he’s catered to the masses streaming out of LoDo bars on weekend nights, running a gyro food truck his family owns. For now, that’s over. 
"We are the bottom of the totem pole," said Mutic. "We are the easiest to kick out. We’re here on a conditional city permit, so that can be revoked in a minute."

This isn’t DPD’s only strategy to try and control crowds outside of LoDo bars. The department told 9NEWS that in the past several months they’ve installed new portable lights, closed down streets in the area to cars and increased DUI patrols. 
There are still questions surrounding the recent shooting with DPD officers, including the department’s refusal to release body camera video.
