A one-legged homeless man in a wheelchair camping out at a Fort Fanning Historical Park has spurred city council members to consider passing an ordinance against panhandling and no solicitation.
According to Fire Chief Ron McQueen at last Tuesday's city council meeting, the vagrant – as Mayor Cheryl Nekola has coined him - is costing the city money.
The man reportedly slumps down in his wheelchair and those who pass by either stop to give him money or they call 911, McQueen said. Once first responders arrive, the man assures them he is fine.
