Nampa Posting Anti-Panhandling Signs
Nampa City Council, according to the Idaho Press, has unanimously passed a plan to allow anti-panhandling signs across the city. The signs will be purchased by the Nampa Police Department and there will be 10 in total, totaling $1,800.
Clearly, the city aims to cut down on panhandling on streets throughout the city. Having grown up in Nampa I never really noticed a problem with panhandling in Nampa but, over the years and with my time away--has that changed? Apparently it has changed enough for the city to call for these signs.
The signs will read: "No panhandling, No soliciting without a permit. Want to help? Please donate to local charities"
According to the news report, the City Council couldn't recall where the 10 signs would be placed...but allegedly, those locations are already determined.
