City Council Votes Committee Suggestions Into Law

City Council’s decision.

Today the Raleigh City Council voted to temporarily not enforce the ordinance currently in place that prohibits sharing food in Moore Square.

“The Committee recommends not enforcing the rules and regulations relating to feeding the homeless in Moore Square until administration develops a possible solution to the issues for consideration at the November 26, 2013 Law and Public Safety Committee meeting. It is understood the stay of enforcement only relates to feeding the homeless at Moore Square.”

The decision comes on the heels of the recommendations made by the Law & Public Safety Committee that arose from a hearing last week.

Love Wins would like to recognize the swift and attentive manner in which the City Council responded to the incident in Moore Square, and we look forward to working together on the long, hard road to reconciliation that is before us as Raleigh learns to embrace all of its citizens.

Editor’s Note: The handwritten clause in the photo details an amendment made to that recommendation, that the City Council will include Love Wins Ministries and other specific groups when it moves forward.
