Wowzers... sounding a little impatient. Street Roots continues to think the ordinance is an unfortuntate exchange for direct services - especially if the Portland Patrol (paid for by the PBA) will be able to issue warning to people sitting or lying on sidewalks. How is it that the business community continues to lobby for laws, help write the laws and then be able to lead oversight groups that look at those very laws? Can we say conflict of interest? Who cares about $150,000 - maybe next we can limit free speech if an interest group builds us a $150,000 free speech park - how about it?
Here's Street Roots take on the PPI who will have a major influence in how the sit-lie is enforced.
