LONGVIEW — The Longview City Council voted to ban camping on public property — parks, sidewalks and parking lots.

The Daily News of Longview reported the council acted Thursday in response to complaints from business owners that transients were using streets and alleys as toilets.

The American Civil Liberties Union warned the council the ordinance could be challenged in court.
