Earlier this week, we asked Tampa Bay area residents to chime in with their thoughts on . While the city of Clearwater has since moved forward with its plan, many Patch readers had mixed feelings about the notion.
Here’s what Clearwater Patch readers had to say:
The city should not allow panhandlers to litter the street when most of them already have an income such as medical etc. The is one fellow that hands out c/ds that even states on the c/d that is has poison in and one it. That is REAL good for our tourist population and our credibility as a city when we can't clean up our own streets.
This just goes against what made us a great nation. We used to fix problems with our citizenship and government. Now we just say,"Not our problem" and push things away.
A number of businesses around this nation have traded room/board/food and small amount of pay to have homeless families work and a place to rebuild. How we can't find people to do the same?
What do you think? Let us know in the comments section.
