ACLU, Lebanon city attorney at odds over proposal to ban camping on city-owned property
LEBANON — Another New Hampshire town has proposed an ordinance that would ban camping on city-owned property.
But the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is standing up against the proposed Lebanon ordinance and denouncing it, Valley News reported.
City Council is scheduled to vote on the proposal Wednesday, and Valley News wrote that the city’s attorney, Bernie Waugh, “reviewed the ordinance and deemed it consistent with state laws.”
The Town of Belmont passed a similar ordinance back on May 31 that designated the Leslie E. Roberts Town Beach as “no camping.”
