Lodi City Council unanimously voted to ban camping in parks and on city sidewalks.
The vote happened Wednesday night after almost 100 people showed up at city hall trying to find solutions for the city's homeless problem.
Anonymous flyers went up around town earlier this month targeting the homeless.
The flyers read:
“Your homeless filth and destruction of property, your illegal squatting in our parks, your pandering in public, urination and defecating wherever you are, the discarded stolen property you leave in your wake is not wanted in Lodi. Find your family, get help, move out of Lodi. Do something productive towards your future.”
Council members will likely schedule another city hall meeting to discuss more possible solutions.
