Add comment on:Nasty new ordinance making Sleeping Ban Tickets misdemeanors Tuesday 3 PM at City Council
The City Attorney's office is apparently not satisfied with spending $50,000 to $100,000 targeting Anna Richardson and Miguel de Leon in the unusual and unjustified Permanent Injunction Hearing that lasted through the last week. Their crime? Sleeping tickets in a town with no shelter for 95% of its homeless. The new law would restore misdemeanor status to Sleeping and Blanket Ban citations (removed in 1999 by City Council action). The First Reading of the new law will be hustled through Tuesday afternoon at another of Mayor Rotkin's inconvenient-for-the-public 3 PM sessions of the twice-monthly City Council meeting. It is item #25 on the agenda. Due up at a time uncertain--probably 3:30 PM or later.
