ALAMOSA, Colo. (AP) - The Alamosa City Council has unanimously rejected a proposal that would have banned panhandling.
Instead, the council is asking city staffers to modify the ordinance to strike a balance between the right to ask for assistance and protecting residents.
According to the Alamosa Valley Courier, Police Chief Craig Dodd says panhandlers are interfering with pedestrians and traffic.
