Panhandling Ordinance Repealed

Pensacola, FL (WKRG) – The Pensacola City Council agreed to repeal the Panhandling Ordinance tonight. The Council first approved the ordinance back in May. It made asking for money in the Downtown District a civil violation.

The original ordinance imposed fines on panhandlers and street performers asking for money. The ordinance was only in effect for a few months before tonight’s vote to repeal.
