An ordinance adding Chapter 19 to Title VI of the Placerville City Code makes the storage of personal property, including camp paraphernalia, on public property or on private property without written consent of the owner, unlawful. It allows the city manager to issue permits to establish, maintain and operate a camp facility for a special event on public property at his discretion and makes it a misdemeanor to establish, maintain or operate a camp facility without a permit. Overnight camping on private residential property with permission of the owner is limited to not more than five consecutive nights.
A second ordinance, adding Chapter 20 to Title VI of the Placerville City Code, makes it a misdemeanor to aggressively solicit, ask or beg in any public place. All solicitation of any type is prohibited on public property within 15 feet of any bank, check-cashing business or ATM and solicitation of the operator or occupants of a motor vehicle, public transportation vehicle or within 15 feet of a fueling pump, air or water hose at a gas station.
Both ordinances passed with a 4-0 vote and become effective on Feb. 13.
