Cannon Beach updates homeless camping ordinance


Cannon Beach city councilors recently updated a long-standing ordinance about where people can camp outdoors to address more than early morning surfers, or travelers passing through. The city has seen a small number of people who are homeless passing through over the years, and the new ordinance restricts where they can camp. Police Chief Jason Schermerhorn tells us about how he deals with people experiencing homelessness in Cannon Beach.
