To limit the spread of the coronavirus, the Los Angeles City Council voted last year to temporarily stop enforcing a law requiring tents to come down during the daytime in many public areas.

Now, mayoral candidate and City Councilman Joe Buscaino is requesting that the city resumes its ban on the sidewalk encampments from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. as the economy reopens.

“Yesterday, I proposed to the council that we resume these comprehensive clean ups of our public spaces, because I believe with this one action we could start making a real difference in the out of control encampments we see throughout our city,” the councilman told KTLA Thursday.
