Salem city officials are hoping to put a stop to panhandlers who aggressively approach locals for money, according to an item published in The Salem News.
The ordinance would reportedly keep local panhandlers from approaching people near ATMs and from being able to walk up to vehicles that are stopped at red lights. Each offense would carry a maximum fine of $50.
