A proposed city ordinance takes aim at protecting us and our families from aggressive panhandling, people who beg for money in threatening tones.
It's become a real problem in Rockford as of late, and city council members are considering whether to make it illegal to panhandle at night, to follow people after asking for money or to use abusive language when begging. No action was taken Monday night. City leaders will consider it again on September 11th.
