Panhandling in Hot Springs

Danie Mauch started this petition to City of Hot Springs, Garland County

As of today, August 9th, 2019, it's legal for people to panhandle and solicit money, food, etc from people in cars and otherwise in the City of Hot Springs. These panhandlers often leave trash at their soliciting site, obstruct traffic, act offensively, including public urination and defecation, and cause destruction to property. We are not discussing the true homeless population who are in need and often don't ask for help. We are tired of being accosted at intersections, asked for money and then watching these panhandlers often go buy alcohol, cigarettes or worse with that money. The simple solution would be to not give, but a better solution would be for our donations to go to organizations who have a proven track record of helping people in our community. The levels of deceit and manipulation used by panhandlers have become a blight on our beautiful city, and many of it's citizens are fed up with seeing them on almost every street corner.
