LORAIN, OHIO: A Northeast Ohio city is trying to get a handle on panhandling downtown.

Business owners in Lorain, about 30 miles west of Cleveland, say aggressive people begging for money are driving away customers and making the area unsafe.

Merchants have recently put signs in front of their businesses declaring “zero tolerance” for panhandling. The city has laws against it, and businesses are being encouraged to call police to report it when they see it.

Downtown Lorain has been depressed and has seen a growing number of panhandlers on its streets.

Jon Veard of United Property Management Corporation says that making downtown streets safe and desirable again is important so businesses will want to come back.
