Alderman Suggest Fines For Giving Money To Panhandlers

Some Springfield aldermen are looking at ways to get even tougher on downtown panhandling, including the possibility of issuing citations to people who give money to panhandlers.


Alderman Tim Griffin says it’s been done in other communities as a way of discouraging panhandling. And Alderman Sam Cahnman says while he’s not necessarily endorsing the idea, he thinks it’s worth considering.


Some business owners downtown say panhandlers have been getting more aggressive recently.
