Mount Vernon bans panhandling
The ordinance approved Wednesday bans interactions between pedestrians and vehicles.
The Skagit Valley Herald reports the proposal hit a snag last month when firefighters asked for an exemption for their annual "Fill the Boot" fundraiser.
Violators of the new panhandling ban could face a $500 fine or 30 days in jail.
