Homeless convince city leaders
to suspend no-camping law
A group of about 60 homeless people and their supporters convinced the Boulder City Council on Tuesday night to consider a moratorium on tickets for sleeping in parks, under bridges or in other public areas.
The City Council directed City Manager Jane Brautigam to bring back language within a few weeks for an emergency ordinance that would suspend enforcement of the no-camping rule.
The decision came after more than an hour of testimony and a protest by homeless people living on Boulder's streets, who pleaded for an end to $100 tickets for sleeping overnight in public without a permit.
