Street beggars in Fort Lauderdale may soon be banned from panhandling if the city agrees on Tuesday to enact tough new restrictions.
Ft. Lauderdale will take the first step this week towards a ban on begging throughout the city. On Tuesday, city commissioners will begin discussion on a proposal which would bar panhandling at city parks, parking garages and near ATMs and cafes.
A plan to rid panhandlers from the city of Fort Lauderdale goes before city commissioners Tuesday.
If you started seeing more Fort Lauderdale Police officers patrolling the area around Stranahan Park this week, it’s no accident.
