Council Passes Anti-panhandling Ordinance
Last night the Arcata City Council approved an extreme anti-panhandling ordinance despite unanimous opposition from all the members of the public that spoke at the packed meeting. Many in the audience suggested letting the voters decide. Some said Mayor Stillman should have recused herself. The vote was 3-2. A Facebook group against the measure, now has 50 members.
