MPD gives an update on the pan-handing Ordinance

January 2, 2020

The new panhandling ordinance has been in effect in meridian for weeks and appears to be working.

 

Police say there have only been 2 citations issued so far. Some people think issuing citations is a bit harsh to people who just want to help.

 

"I can understand if you’re at the stop sign and you see somebody come out with a squeegee and wash your window off; I’ll give them a dollar because I see that they’re trying to make a hustle. I’m not trying to stop a man for their hustle. If someone just expect you to give them something, it’s just about that just don’t set right,” said Radgneal Bryant.

 

If you’re given a citation – it will cost, you over two hundred bucks.
