City council members in Oklahoma City have raised protests over alleged unequal and unfair enforcement of codes governing food trucks. According to a report in The Oklahoman, Oklahoma City Councilman Skip Kelly, one of two council members representing the district in which the health department raid took place, spoke out about the incident:
“This was overreaching in one area, and it’s unfair. I’m not saying turn your head the other way on these violations. But if you can’t get two or three people to go out and work northeast Oklahoma City and address issues because it would require overtime, but you can get all these people out to south Oklahoma City, how is that right?”
Another council member, councilwoman Meg Salyer, is calling for an inquiry to see if the health department’s plan to focus on certain regions in preference to others is an example of unfair scrutiny.
